Arsenal's Eduardo won't face ban

Football bosses Uefa have changed their mind and decided not to ban Arsenal's Eduardo for two Champions League games for diving.

The striker had been found guilty of diving in order to win a penalty in a match against Celtic in August.

But Arsenal appealed and now Uefa says that he'll be allowed to play in their first two matches in the competition.

Eduardo said: "I'm very pleased that we have finally arrived at the truth" in a statement on the Arsenal website.
