El Salvador Players Get Suspended For Biting US Footballers On The Pitch

The regional governing body, CONCACAF, has suspended two El Salvador players for biting American opponents during the Gold Cup quarterfinals last Wednesday.

Henry Romero, a defender with El Salvador was given a six-game ban while Darwin Ceren, the captain of the national team received three for separate incidents that occurred during the United States’ 2-0 win over El Salvador.

Romero bit U.S. striker Jozy Altidore on the back of his shoulder in the first half while Cerin bit U.S. defender Omar Gonzalez in the second half.

The regional governing body announced the sanctions for the players on Saturday, describing their actions as an “anti-sporting behavior”.
