2014 FIFA World Cup disciplinary record

The following article outlines the disciplinary record for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which took place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. The main disciplinary action taken against players came in the form of red and yellow cards.

Any player sanctioned with a red card was sent off from the pitch and could not be replaced, forcing his team to play a man fewer. Furthermore, the player was automatically banned from his country's next match, whether via a straight red or second yellow. After a straight red card, FIFA conducted a hearing and considered extending this ban beyond one match. If the ban extended beyond the end of the World Cup finals (i.e. if a player was sent off in the match in which his team was eliminated), it had to be served in the team's next competitive international match(es).

Players also received a one match ban if they picked up a single yellow card in two different games from the beginning of the group stage until the end of the quarter-final matches, at which point single yellow cards were negated.[1] However, such a ban did not carry over beyond the World Cup finals if the second yellow card was collected in his team's last match of the tournament.[2] Previously, players received a one match ban if they picked up two yellow cards within the group stage or within the knockout stage. The carried yellow card rule was changed to give players a better chance to compete in the final in case their team advanced that far.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Greece manager Fernando Santos was dismissed before the penalty shoot-out, but is not included within the statistics as he was not a player competing in the tournament. According to FIFA laws, only players, substitutes, and substituted players could be cautioned and/or sent-off (shown a card). Fernando Santos was given an 8-match suspension by FIFA.
  2. ^ a b Suárez was suspended by FIFA for 9 matches for his national team, banned for 4 months from any football-related activity, and fined CHF100,000 for a biting incident during Uruguay's final group stage game against Italy. This suspension made Suárez ineligible for the rest of the tournament. After an appeal made to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the ban was upheld, but Suárez was now allowed to attend training sessions and participate in non-competitive matches. As Uruguay's participation in the World Cup had ended after the team had played one more game (vs Colombia in the Round of 16), Suárez had to serve the rest of his suspension during the next 8 competitive games of Uruguay, including the entire 2015 Copa América and the first four matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification.
  3. ^ a b As Valencia was sent off in Ecuador's last match of the tournament, he had to serve a suspension during the next competitive game of Ecuador (the first match at 2015 Copa América vs Chile).
  4. ^ a b Song was given a three-match ban. As Cameroon's participation ended after the team had played one more game (vs Brazil), Song had to serve the rest of his suspension during the next two competitive games of Cameroon (AFCON 2015 qualifying matches vs DR Congo and Ivory Coast).
  5. ^ a b As Rebić was sent off in Croatia's last match of the tournament, he had to serve a suspension during the next competitive game of Croatia (a Euro 2016 qualifying match vs Malta).
  6. ^ a b Mandžukić was suspended for his team's first match of the tournament after being sent off for serious foul play in the final qualification match against Iceland 19 November 2013.
  7. ^ a b Šimunić was suspended for 10 matches for using a fascist slogan after the final qualification match against Iceland, 19 November 2013. This included playing or attending matches. Šimunić was therefore ineligible for the entire tournament, and was not called up for the Croatian squad. As Croatia's participation ended after the team had played 3 games, Šimunić had to serve the rest of his suspension during the first seven matches of Euro 2016 qualifying.
  8. ^ a b As Marchisio was sent off in Italy's last match of the tournament, he had to serve a suspension during the next competitive game of Italy (a Euro 2016 qualifying match vs Norway).
  9. ^ a b Guarín was suspended for his team's first match of the tournament after being sent off for a double yellow card in the final qualification match against Paraguay, 15 October 2013.
  10. ^ a b Makani was suspended for his team's first match of the tournament, for a post-match altercation after the final qualification match against South Korea, 18 June 2013. Makani was eventually omitted from the Iranian squad, but the suspension was still considered to be served during the tournament (Suspension – FIFA).
