Wayne Rooney WILL be banned for two matches

Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney has lost an appeal against his two-match ban for swearing into a television camera.

The FA said they wouldn't accept that the punishment they've given Rooney is over the top.

The striker said sorry after United's 4-2 win over West Ham when he swore down a pitch-side television camera.

Rooney will miss Saturday's Premier League game against Fulham and the following week's crucial FA Cup semi-final match against Manchester City.
