World Cup 2010: Radomir Antic punished for ref outburst

Tim Cahill and Lucas Neill

Highlights - Australia 2-1 Serbia

Serbia coach Radomir Antic has been given a four-match ban for dissent during his side's World Cup group stage defeat by Australia.

Antic was angry that referee Jorge Larrionda denied Serbia a penalty late on in his side's 2-1 loss when the ball appeared to hit Tim Cahill's hand.

On top of the ban, 61-year-old Ancic was fined 14,000 Swiss francs (£8,755).

The Serbian football federation issued a statement criticising the decision and stating its intention to appeal.

"The FSS is surprised by the harshness of this measure and will use all judicial measures to complain to [world football's governing body] Fifa," the statement added.

Serbia beat Germany in group stage but failed to qualify for the last 16 after losing to Ghana and Australia.
