[OLYMPIC QUALIFYING] The FIFA Disciplinary Committee suspended Salvadoran player Alexander Larin for three games
following its 3-3 tie with the United States that sent the Selecta through to the semifinals of Concacaf Olympic Qualifying and eliminated the Americans. Cameras caught Larin punching Terrence Boyd and bloodying his face in the second half off the game away from the view of the match officials.
Concacaf's announcement of the suspension, which means Larin will be ineligible for El Salvador’s semifinal match against Honduras on Saturday, did not refer to what he had done.
If El Salvador qualifies to the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Larin will miss the Concacaf tournament final and El Salvador’s opening match at the 2012 Olympics in London.
