Croatia chief Markovic: Arsenal's Eduardo no diver

The president of the Croatian football federation, Vlatko Markovic, has rubbished UEFA claims that Arsenal striker Eduardo dived to win a penalty in their Champions League win over Celtic.

Eduardo has been banned for two games and Markovic said: "Eduardo didn't fall theatrically.

"There was some contact at first and he fell afterwards. Eduardo has such a light constitution that a strong gust of wind could knock him over. But Eduardo is not the type of man or player who would simulate."
