Man Utd's Tevez has ban reduced

Carlos Tevez, the Manchester United striker, has seen his two-match international ban reduced to one on appeal.

Tevez was shown a red card for kicking Ruben Dario Bustos, of Colombia, in an off-the-ball incident during the first half of Argentina's 2-1 defeat in November's 2010 World Cup qualifier in Bogota.

Fifa initially banned Tevez for two matches but have now informed the Argentinian Football Association that it has been reduced to one game, with one suspended for six months.
