FIFA to hear S. Korea case

ZURICH -- A South Korea soccer player who displayed a political sign after the bronze-medal match at the London Olympics will have his disciplinary case heard on Oct. 5.

The verdict will help decide if Park Jong-woo gets the bronze medal that the International Olympic Committee has withheld since Aug. 10.

After South Korea beat Japan 2-0 at Cardiff, Park displayed a sign with a slogan supporting sovereignty over disputed islets that Japan also claims.

FIFA made the announcement on Friday. The IOC and FIFA prohibit on-field political statements.

The IOC ordered the South Korean Olympic Committee to ensure Park did not collect his medal at Wembley Stadium two days later.

South Korea team officials said the display was not planned, and Park picked up the sign after it was thrown from the stands.

Park has since been called up to the senior national team. The 23-year-old midfielder was selected to the squad preparing for a 2014 World Cup qualifier Tuesday against Uzbekistan in Tashkent.
