Everton boss Martinez BANNED from World Cup

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has been BANNED from the World Cup. The Daily Mail says Martinez has joined the England team on the World Cup casualty list by having his tournament accreditation taken away.

FIFA took action against Martinez, who is working as a pundit for American channel ESPN, after he allowed his accreditation to be used by someone else who wanted to watch Holland train.

The FIFA pass is strictly non-transferable with the terms and conditions that the Spaniard would have signed before receiving the accreditation informing him it could be withdrawn for regulation breaches.

Martinez now can only be used as a studio analyst on their Copacabana set as he cannot gain entry to stadiums or training grounds.
