UEFA will not review Pavel Nedved's booking against Denmark after Czech officials asked European football's governing body to do so.

UEFA will not review Pavel Nedved's booking against Denmark after Czech officials asked European football's governing body to do so.

No chance
The Czech Republic felt Nedved's booking for felling Jesper Grønkjær in the 61st minute of Sunday's quarter-final was unjust and today invited UEFA to look into the incident. However, UEFA has confirmed that the request cannot be met, citing Article 44 paragraphs 3 and 4 of its disciplinary regulations.

Nedved bow
Nedved, who missed the 2002/03 UEFA Champions League final through suspension, is therefore one of eleven players a booking away from missing a potential final appearance on 4 July. "I will not change my style or shirk from the fight," said Nedved, the European Footballer of the Year.

Players one booking away from suspension

Czech Republic: Marek Jankulovski, Pavel Nedved, Tomáš Ujfaluši.
Greece: Georgios Karagounis, Theodoros Zagorakis.
Netherlands: Frank de Boer, Roy Makaay, Andy van der Meyde.
Portugal: Costinha, Deco, Ricardo Carvalho.
