Luis Suarez: Not facing any action over alleged stamping incident

The Uruguayan forward was pictured stepping on defender Tomas Hubocan's back towards the end of the Anfield encounter and some observers felt he deliberately stamped.

Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers did not punish Suarez for the incident but UEFA is able to use video evidence if it wishes to review any possible misconduct.

However, UEFA has said its "disciplinary unit has decided not to open a case".

Suarez was on target with a pair of long range free-kicks that night as Liverpool prevailed 3-1 but they went out on the away-goals rule, having lost the first leg 2-0 in Russia.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
