The Disciplinary Committee has suspendd four players and an assistant coach in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 4 games.

After racking up 12 warnings and fines for homophobic chanting during World Cup qualifying, the Mexican Football Federation has now been fined for that same chant in the World Cup itself.
FIFA fined Mexico 10,000 Swiss Francs for “discriminatory and insulting chants” in their World Cup opener against Germany.
FIFA introduced a three-step system at the Confederations Cup aimed at discouraging such behavior, which is in force in the World Cup as well. The system gives referees the authority to stop games if discriminatory chants or behavior occurs.
None of the steps – a stadium announcement, followed by a stoppage in play, followed by suspending the game – came into play in the Germany vs Mexico match. FIFA claimed that a stadium announcement was being prepared when the chanting ceased.
