Disciplinary action opens against Chile defender Jara

Santiago, June 28 (IANS) The disciplinary tribunal of South American football confederation (Conmebol ) has opened proceedings against Gonzalo Jara for his actions during Chile’s 1-0 win over Uruguay in the Copa America quarter-finals.

The defender was involved in a clash with Edinson Cavani that appeared to provoke the Uruguay striker on Thursday, whose subsequent reaction was punished with a second yellow card.

It is expected that a decision will be made before Chile’s semi-final with Peru on Monday, June 29, giving the player time to present a defence.

The tribunal has also received a complaint from the Chile Football Association (ANFP) against several members of the Uruguay team following their match on June 24.

That case will be examined once the Copa is concluded, since any potential punishments levied against Uruguay will have no impact on the ongoing tournament, given their elimination.

According to the FIFA Disciplinary Code, suspensions that surpass the duration of the Copa will carry over to the qualifying matches for the 2018 World Cup.
