Mihajlovic banned for Norway clash

Mihajlovic heads for an early bath
Yugoslavia defender Sinisa Mihajlovic has been handed a one-match suspension following his red card against Slovenia on Tuesday.

The Lazio sweeper picked up two yellow cards in the space of five minutes and was sent off with his side trailing 3-0.

Remarkably, Yugoslavia fought back to draw 3-3 without their influential defender - and they will have to do without him against Norway in Liege on June 18.


Sinisa Mihajlovic

Mihajlovic, a survivor of the Red Star Belgrade side which won the 1991 European Cup and World Club Championship, was the third player to be sent off in the championships.

Andersson off

Sweden's Patrik Andersson was sent off after a second booking in the tournament's opening match against co-hosts Belgium.

Czech defender Radoslav Latal also saw red for arguing with the fourth official, even though he had already been substituted.

As well as the three red cards, there were 21 bookings in the first round of group matches.
