FIFA to investigate Rooney red

Wayne Rooney will be investigated for violent conduct following his 62nd-minute sending-off in England4s quarter-final defeat by Portugal.

FIFA spokesman Markus Siegler said this morning: 'Wayne Rooney got a direct red card so he will automatically be suspended.'

He added: 'It will be a disciplinary case. If you may ask why (he was sent off) I refer to law 12 on violent conduct to make that clear. Like for any other player (who got a red card) the committee will decide on the penalty.'

Rooney was dismissed after appearing to stamp on the groin of Ricardo Carvalho and then push Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Asked whether the 20-year-old was dismissed for the stamping or pushing, Siegler said: 'I refer to rule number 12 on sending-off offences.'

FIFA`s disciplinary committee also opened a case against Argentina4s Maxi Rodriguez for his involvement in the post-match brawl between Germany and Argentina.
