European Qualifiers: Two-game ban for Wales midfielder Andy King

Wales midfielder Andy King will serve a two-match competitive ban following his sending-off during his country's 2-1 victory over Cyprus earlier this month.

The Leicester player was shown a straight red card for fouling Constantinos Makridis at the Cardiff City Stadium on October 13.

He is now unavailable for their next two European Qualifiers against Belgium and Israel.

A statement from the Football Association of Wales reads: "The FAW has been informed by UEFA that Andy King has been suspended for two matches."

Following the match, Wales manager Chris Coleman defended King’s dismissal by saying: "It's not really his fault.

"The timing was wrong and he had a red but that's probably down to myself and the staff.

 "We've been firing the lads up the last two games. We've been into the lads all week saying 'whatever they give to us, we give to them' and I can't blame Andy for that."
