Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio gets six matches ban from Federation Internationale de Football Association

Posted July 11, 2017

The charge arose following his behaviour during the match, in Moscow, on July 2, and a statement from Federation Internationale de Football Association reads: "Mr Osorio used insulting words towards the match officials while displaying an aggressive attitude towards them". He led the protests and was sent to the stands.

He was found guilty of breaching article 49.1A of FIFA's Disciplinary Code during the third-place play-off match, between Mexico and Portugal, at the recent Confederations Cup.

MEXICO head coach Juan Carlos Osorio has been handed a six-game ban for abuse of officials during the Confederations Cup.

If Mexico is eliminated before the Gold Cup final, Osorio would serve his suspension in Mexico's September World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Costa Rica.

Opioid prescriptions dropped but remain high, CDC says
But the sheer volume of opioids prescribed that year was still three times higher than in 1999, according to new government data. The death rates from heroin and fentanyl have increased a lot faster than death rates from prescription narcotics.

Should Mexico play fewer than six games at the Gold Cup, Osario's suspension will carry over into their next global matches.

In addition to the ban, which is effective immediately, Osorio was warned about his conduct and fined 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,183.50), Federation Internationale de Football Association said.

Last month, Osorio apologised for another outburst, this time directed at the opposing bench during Mexico's 2-1 group victory over New Zealand at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

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