Dadu and Dimech given bans

Moldova's Serghei Dadu and Malta's Luke Dimech have been banned for two international matches after being dismissed in a qualifier on 24 March.

Moldova's Serghei Dadu and Malta's Luke Dimech have been each been banned for two UEFA national-team competition matches after their joint dismissal in the UEFA EURO 2008™ Group C qualifier in Chisinau on 24 March.

Skirmish after goal
The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body heard that the two players were involved in a skirmish after Moldova's equaliser in the 83rd minute of the game, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Given that Dadu did not play in Moldova's subsequent EURO qualifier against Hungary on 28 March, and Dimech did not participate in Malta's match against Greece, both players will serve the remaining match of their suspension in their teams' forthcoming group match - Dimech against Norway on 2 June, and Dadu against Greece on 6 June. Appeals may be lodged against the decisions by midnight on Saturday 14 April.

Future conduct
In addition, the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body warned the Football Association of Moldova on the future conduct of the Moldovan team after their players received four yellow cards and one red card in the game against Malta.
