Ricardo Sa Pinto, who last week attacked Portugal's national coach, Artur Jorge, after he was left out of the national team, was suspended yesterday from international football while the incident is investigated. The Portuguese football federation said a committee would report its findings within 15 days to Fifa, the game's world governing body.
Fifa has suspended Portuguese referees from international matches until the country's referees' association and football federation resolve a dispute over an appointment on the referees' council.
