FIFA are to examine Martin Taylor’s foul on Eduardo to see whether the Birmingham defender’s three-match ban should extended.

President Sepp Blatter said his organisation was within its rights to study the case to ensure that appropriate sanctions have been issued.

Blatter, speaking in Gleneagles following a meeting of the International FA Board, said: “We will ask for the file.

“We have now the right to ask national associations to give us the file – and if we, the authorities, feel it [the suspension] is not enough then we will come back on that.”

Blatter said it has even been suggested that perpetrators of violent tackles should be suspended for the same length of time as their victims are out injured.

Blatter added: “I told the International Board that a player who is deliberately attacking another player and tries to demolish a player should be banned, and not only for three matches but temporarily banned or a life ban depending on the severity of the attack.

“Why the hell should footballers demolish each other?”
