Statement: Neco Williams

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) have been in direct contact with FIFA and UEFA regarding what (if any) suspension Neco Williams may have to serve as a result of his red card v France on 2nd June.

FIFA have confirmed that as per article 27.2 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code the match falls under the jurisdiction of UEFA. UEFA Disciplinary Regulations do not legislate for sanctions related to friendly matches.

The FAW have therefore sanctioned Neco Williams directly for the red card but can confirm he will be available to participate in tonight’s fixture.

No further comment will be made at this time.
