England striker Wayne
Rooney's appeal against a three-match ban which will force him
to miss the group stage of Euro 2012 will be heard on December 9,
UEFA said on Tuesday.
Rooney was sent off in the 74th minute of the 2-2 draw away
to Montenegro last month for aiming a kick at Miodrag Dzudovic.
UEFA found him guilty of "assault" and gave him a
three-match international ban which would coincide with the
opening three games of next year's tournament in Poland and
European football's governing body said the date "follows
UEFA's receipt on Friday 4 November of the official written
appeal from the English Football Association."
