Germany's Schweinsteiger cops one-match ban

Uefa has handed Germany's Bastian Schweinsteiger a one-match ban following his sending off.

Schweinsteiger was dismissed in the 2-1 loss to Croatia on Thursday after he retaliated to a late Jerko Leko challenge.

The Bayern Munich midfielder will now miss Germany's decisive Group B qualifier versus co-hosts Austria.

Germany coach Joachim Low said: "It's a great pity that Bastian will be missing.

"Fortunately, it's only for one match ... but he has done us a disservice by getting sent off. I told the players not to get provoked or to react violently."
