Everton’s Niasse Suspended for 2 Matches

LONDON – Everton striker Oumar Niasse was sanctioned on Wednesday by England’s Football Federation with a two-game suspension for diving.

The Senegalese player was accused by the FA of diving in the penalty area after minimal contact with Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann during Saturday’s Premier League game at Selhurst Park Stadium, which ended 2-2.

Everton scored on the penalty kick.

“It was alleged he committed an act of simulation which led to a penalty being awarded in the fifth minute of the game against Crystal Palace on 18 November 2017,” the FA statement said.

“He denied the charge, however, it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today,” the note added.

Niasse becomes the first player in the history of the Premier League to be punished for simulation under a new rule introduced by the FA in May.

The 27-year-old will miss the Everton games on Sunday at home against Southampton and on Nov. 29 at home against West Ham United.

Everton said in a statement that the club was “disappointed” with the decision of the FA, but would accept Niasse’s suspension.
