USMNT’s Tim Weah gets 2-game ban for red card

United States men’s national team forward Tim Weah has been suspended for an additional match and fined $3,000 for his red card against Panama at the Copa América, South America’s confederation Conmebol confirmed to ESPN.

Weah was ejected from the USMNT’s 2-1 loss to Panama on Thursday in the 18th minute for an extended-arm jab to the back of the head of Panama defender Roderick Miller.

Weah was already due to miss Monday’s crucial group-stage finale against Uruguay to serve the automatic one-game suspension from the red card. On Saturday, Conmebol added an additional game to the suspension, meaning Weah would miss a potential quarterfinal should the USMNT advance in Copa América.
