U21 star cleared of racist abuse
Aaron Hunt
Hunt was originally given a two-match ban for his alleged remarks
Germany Under-21 player Aaron Hunt's two-game ban for "gross unsporting conduct" during a game against England has been overturned by Uefa.

England's Anton Ferdinand and Micah Richards both alleged they received racial abuse during October's European Under-21 Championship play-off.

Werder Bremen striker Hunt denied the accusations but was found guilty by governing body Uefa last month.

Hunt said there had been "some fierce verbal exchanges" but no racist terms.

"I had nothing to be reproached for," he was quoted as saying on the German Football Association (DFB) website.

"Therefore I am glad that the accusations have been invalidated."

England beat Germany 2-0 to reach the European Championships finals.
