Wayne Rooney’s Three-match Euro Ban Appeal Set for December 9

Manchester United superstar striker, Wayne Rooney, will have his fate decided on December 9th.

The FA’s appeal against Wayne Rooney’s three-match Euro 2012 suspension will be heard on December 9.

England hope to have Rooney available for at least the final group match in Poland and Ukraine next summer.

Rooney was red-carded for violent conduct in England’s last qualifier against Montenegro.

UEFA said in a statement: ‘The UEFA Appeals Body will deal with the case of England striker Wayne Rooney on Friday 9 December at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon.

‘This follows UEFA’s receipt on Friday 4 November of the official written appeal from the English Football Association against the three-match suspension given to Rooney by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on 13 October.’

Rooney recently commented to the press, ‘Obviously, it’s devastating for me but it’s something that’s my own fault, so I can’t really complain.

‘It was stupid of me – I regretted it as soon as I did it. It’s no excuse, but I still feel the punishment is a bit harsh. I’m disappointed with it.

‘All the details we have been waiting on have come through, so we’ll be making a decision as to whether we will be appealing. Even if it’s reduced by one game, it will be a bonus for me.’
