The elimination in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar was very difficult for the players of Uruguay. In the last third round, Uruguay won 2:0 against Ghana, and they needed a three-goal triumph, so the players of the South American team were angry because the referee did not award them a penalty in the last moments of the meeting.
Experienced Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin, Fernando Muslera and Jose Jimenez were bitter in their reactions after the match, so UEFA decided to punish them. Muslera and Jimenez received suspensions of four games each, while Godin and Cavani will be suspended for one game each.
Also, all suspended footballers will have to perform community service related to football and together they will pay a fine of up to 20,000 Swiss francs. Uruguay’s football federation will pay a fine of 50,000 Swiss francs for the behavior of fans and staff members.
