Three-match ban ends Song's World Cup

The midfielder will play no further part in the World Cup after his moment of madness against Croatia

Cameroon midfielder Alex Song has been handed a three-match ban after his sending-off against Croatia.

The Barcelona midfielder was dismissed five minutes before half-time for a senseless elbow into the back of Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic.

Down to 10 men, the African side went on to lose 4-0 and will exit the World Cup at the group stage as a result.
