Kewell given one-match suspension

Harry Kewell
Kewell insisted his handball was not deliberate

Australia's Harry Kewell has been suspended for one match following his sending off for a deliberate handball during Friday's 1-1 draw against Ghana.

Kewell could have been handed a two-game ban, but Fifa's disciplinary committee opted not to impose a stiffer punishment on the ex-Liverpool player.

It means he will miss Wednesday's final Group D match against Serbia but will be available if Australia progress.

The Socceroos must win the game to have any chance of reaching the last 16.

Kewell protested bitterly after being red carded for stopping the ball on the line with his arm. Ghana equalised from the resulting penalty.

He later accused referee Roberto Rosetti of having "killed" his World Cup.
