Serbia fights FIFA punishment of coach Antic

Serbia fights FIFA punishment of coach Antic

Serbia's Football Association has appealed against FIFA's decision to suspend and fine national team coach Radomir Antic.
The Serbian FA says the appeal against a four-match ban and a 14,000 Swiss francs ((EURO)10,000; $13,000) fine was sent to FIFA on Thursday.
The world football governing body imposed the penalties this month over Antic's alleged "inappropriate behavior" after a World Cup match against Australia on June 23, which Serbia lost 2-1.
Antic criticized the referee after the defeat, which eliminated Serbia from the tournament at the group stage.
