Antic banned for four matches

Serbia coach Radomir Antic has been banned for four matches by FIFA's disciplinary committee.

Antic was cited for "inappropriate behaviour" during Serbia's 2-1 defeat against Australia and also fine 14,000 Swiss francs ($13,200) for his comments over certain refereeing decisions.

The coach was angry that referee Jorge Larrionda denied his side a late penalty and said after the game: "The referee had a black day against Serbia. The first offside with [Milos] Krasic wasn't offside and in the previous games, we had handball given against us. The referee, including the fourth referee, didn't want to see the foul which was quite obvious."

In an official statement, the Serbian Football Association said they would appeal the decision.

"Football Association of Serbia wish to express their dissatisfaction with the inappropriate punishment given to coach Radomir Antic, for which we will use all legal resources through the FIFA Appeal Committee," the statement said. "This will occur within seven days.

"We are surprised with the fine especially because our players and management have shown a high level of sportsmanship and tolerance during the qualifying tournament and World Cup in South Africa. We are also prepared to complain to the Independent Tribunal of Sports Arbitration in Lausanne if necessary.''
