Carvalho banned for one year

Portugal defender Ricardo Carvalho has been handed a one-year international ban by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) after walking out on the side last month.

Carvalho, 33, claimed he was 'disrespected and hurt' after being overlooked for selection in his country's Euro 2012 qualifier against Cyprus and left the training camp without permission.

The Real Madrid defender then issued a statement to announce his retirement from international football, although if he does decide to return it will have to wait for a 12-month period.

An FPF statement read: "We could have applied article 21 of the national team regulations, which supports the expulsion of a player for 24 months.

''Taking into account the player's record, the board decided on the removal of the player from the national team for one year, as well as the loss of prizes to be awarded as a result of any qualification for the Euro 2012 finals."
