London Olympics 2012: Spain’s footballers to be fined

14:35   30 July, 2012

The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) will penalize the Spanish national football team participating in the 2012 London Olympics.

During their second-round match against Honduras, the Spaniards were shown seven yellow cards and they argued with the game referee on numerous occasions. The Spanish players demanded that the referee appoint a penalty against Honduras. In addition, there was a halftime brawl between the footballers of the two countries, Marca informs.  

Spain have suffered two consecutive defeats in the London Olympics, and therefore they have not qualified for the playoffs.     

To note, 25 athletes are representing Armenia at the 2012 London Olympics, which officially kicked off on July 27 and they will come to a close on August 12.
