UEFA uphold Binya's six-match European ban

BERNE, Switzerland, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Benfica's defensive midfielder Augustin Binya has failed in his appeal against the six-match European ban for his studs-up tackle on Celtic's Scott Brown.

The Cameroon international, currently on duty with his country at the African Nations Cup, was told on Thursday by UEFA's appeals body the ban would stand.

UEFA's control and disciplinary body issued the original ban on Nov. 16, 10 days after the Group D match which Celtic won 1-0.

Binya, who was shown a red card in the 85th minute after catching Brown just below the knee, has already served two matches of the suspension and will miss both legs of Benfica's UEFA Cup round of 32 tie against Nuremberg.

If Benfica fail to progress, the remaining two matches of the ban will be come into effect for any future European matches that Binya's team qualifies for.
