ASUNCION - The South American Football
Confederation has suspended four players for their part in a
melee at the end of the 0-0 draw between Lanus of Argentina and
Peruvian champions Universitario in the Libertadores Cup.
Lanus teenage forward Leandro Diaz sparked the fighting
when he kicked Universitario goalkeeper Raul Fernandez during
the Group Four match in Buenos Aires 12 days ago in which the
Argentine team were eliminated from the knockout phase.
The four players, Diaz, Fernandez, Lanus midfielder Agustin
Pelletieri and Universitario defender John Galliquio, were
suspended for two matches each.
Peru international Galliquio and Fernandez will miss both
legs of Universitario's tie with Sao Paulo of Brazil in the
first knockout round.
