Portugal defender Pepe handed one-match ban

Friday 20 June 2014

Portugal defender Pepe will serve a one-match ban for his sending off against Germany in his side’s opening World Cup match, BBC Sport has reported.

With his side already trailing 2-0 thanks to goals from Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels, Pepe clashed with Muller while challenging for a high ball. With the striker lying on the ground, the Real Madrid man put his head into the face of the Bayern Munich striker, and was duly sent off.


Muller went on to complete his hat-trick, and it has now been confirmed that Pepe will miss his side’s meeting with the United States in Manaus on Sunday, as well as receiving a fine of £9,860 by FIFA. However, he will be able to play in Portugal’s final Group G game against Ghana on June 26.


The same punishment was handed out to Uruguay’s Maxi Pereira for his sending off against Costa Rica, so having missed the win over England on Thursday evening, he will now be free to take on Italy on Tuesday.
