The F.A to consider appeal

Rooney will await the action of the FAThe Football Association are awaiting the decision by Uefa on the length of Wayne Rooney’s international suspension, before they consider whether or not to appeal.

The Manchester United striker was sent off by referee Wolfgang Stark in the draw on Friday night, as he lashed out at Montenegro defender Miodrag Dzudovic

It has already been confirmed that Rooney is looking at a one-match suspension at least, which has resulted in him being ruled out of England’s opening game of next summer’s European Championship finals in Poland and Ukraine.

It is possible that Uefa may decide to increase punishment, with the possibility of a three match ban, however match official Stark has supported Wayne Rooney’s case by revealing the striker accepted his dismissal.

If Uefa did decide to increase the ban to three matches this would mean that the Star man would miss the Three Lions’ entire group games, leaving a massive gap in boss Fabio Capello’s team.
However FA director of communications Adrian Bevington does not want to speculate on a possible appeal, as he revealed: “That is something we will have to consider.

“We obviously have our own legal people looking through the regulations and we are fully up to speed as to where we stand with that.
“But it would be wrong of me to say we will take any kind of action in response to something Uefa haven’t done yet.
“So let’s see where we get to with Uefa and, if it is a one-game suspension, then we will move on from there.”
