Six-game ban for coach

Six-game ban for coach

Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Friday it was suspending Mexico's soccer coach Juan Carlos Osorio for six games, saying he directed insulting words at match officials during a game against Portugal.

"Depending on the stage at which the final match of the Mexican national team takes place in the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2017, any remaining matches of this six-match suspension shall be served during the national team's subsequent official matches".

Mexico head coach Juan Carlos Osorio has been handed a six matches suspension by Federation Internationale de Football Association on Friday after the former MLS man used insulting words against match officials during a 2-1 loss to Portugal in the third-place playoff at the Confederations Cup.

Osorio was angered after match officials decided not to refer an apparent push on Mexico's Hector Moreno for an assessment by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The third-round match was suspended Friday by darkness after 2 hours, 54 minutes with Querrey leading 6-5 in the fifth set. During that breakthrough season, Kerber won her first two major titles, at the Australian Open and U.S.

Osorio has been punished by Federation Internationale de Football Association for his reaction after Mexico's 2-1 extra-time defeat to Portugal in the third-place play-off in Russia.

Unless the decision is reversed, the disciplinary action means Osorio will not coach Mexico during the Gold Cup, including a July 16 match against Curacao at the Alamodome.

The biennial tournament kicks off this weekend in the United States and features North America, Central America and Caribbean nations.

The defending champion claimed its seventh Gold Cup crown in 2015 and they took a step towards another trophy thanks to first worldwide goals from Hedgardo Marin and Orbelin Pineda, and Elias Hernandez's effort, in San Diego on Monday (AEST).
