FA expels six players

08-04-2009

The FA also expelled six players for a breach of discipline after the World Cup qualifying loss to Slovakia last week. The FA said it had banned forwards Milan Baroš, Martin Fenin and Vaclav Sverkoš plus midfielders Radoslav Kováč and Marek Matějovský and defender Tomáš Ujfaluši from the national team. Ujfaluši had announced he was quitting the national squad just hours before the FA’s decision was announced. He and the other five players came under fire from the FA and the media after they were photographed partying at a Prague restaurant following the 2:1 defeat in a key World Cup qualifier. The tabloid media speculated that the players at the restaurant were accompanied by prostitutes - a charge denied by the team captain on Monday.
