Canada star Sinclair banned 4 games by FIFA
Friday - 10/12/2012, 5:43pm EDT
OTTAWA (AP) - Canadian women's soccer star Christine Sinclair received a four-game suspension from FIFA for her conduct following a dramatic semifinal loss to the United States at the London Olympics.
The findings of a FIFA disciplinary committee panel were released on Friday by the Canadian Soccer Association, which said the discipline was for "displaying unsporting behavior towards match officials." Sinclair also was fined an undisclosed amount.
The captain from Burnaby, B.C., had all three goals in Canada's 4-3 loss at Old Trafford. Canada had the lead until the Americans pulled even late in the second half and prevented a big upset by adding the winner in extra time.
"We feel like we didn't lose, we feel like it was taken from us," Sinclair said moments after the final whistle. "It's a shame in a game like that that was so important, the ref decided the result before it started."
The United States would go on to win the gold medal while Canada took the bronze. The CSA said it contacted FIFA to request the reasons for the judgment and will not comment further until they are received and reviewed.
The Canadian players were upset about a call against goalkeeper Erin McLeod that led to Abby Wambach's tying penalty kick in the 80th minute.
McLeod was whistled for handling the ball for longer than six seconds. The Americans were awarded a free kick inside the box which bounced off the arm of defender Marie-Eve Nault, resulting in the penalty shot.
