Stephan Lichtsteiner has become the latest Switzerland player to be investigated by FIFA following his country’s win over Serbia on Saturday.
Arsenal midfielder Xhaka Granit and Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri are already facing the prospect of a two-match ban following their goal celebrations in the 2-1 win. FIFA are analysing footage to determine whether both players are guilty of ‘Provoking the Public’ after they made a 'double eagle’ gesture symbolising the Albanian flag. Article 54 of the disciplinary code states: "Anyone who provokes the general public during a match will be suspended for two matches and sanctioned with a minimum fine of €5000." On Sunday, FIFA confirmed that they had opened disciplinary procedures on a third player, new Arsenal signing Stephan Lichtsteiner, who was also seen celebrating with his compatriots: "We had a lot of pressure, it was not an easy game for us," he said. "We have a lot of Albanians, so there is a lot of history between Serbia and Albania. It was a very tough game for them mentally." Jun 25 - 4:33 AM
