[PORTUGAL] Coach Carlos Queiroz will miss Portugal's first two Euro 2012 qualifiers after being suspended by the Portuguese soccer federation (FPF) for one month for insulting anti-doping agents who came to the Portuguese national team's training camp before the World Cup to administer surprise doping tests. But Queiroz, the former MetroStars coach and U.S. Soccer consultant, had charges of obstructing the agents dropped -- charges that could have cost him his job.

The FPF also fined Queiroz 1,000 euros ($1,284) after he had admitted exchanging harsh words with the doctors during the visit in May.

Queiroz said he was simply expressing his annoyance that his players’ rest disturbed.

“The FPF management laments the remarks made by the national team coach," the federation said.

Queiroz will miss Portugal’s 2012 European Championship qualifiers on Sept. 3 at home against Cyprus and away to Norway four days later.

Portugal will be coached by assistant Agostinho Oliveira.

Portugal had a disappointing World Cup, exiting after losing to Spain, 1-0, in the second round.

Queiroz has two years left on his contract in his second spell as national team coach.
