FIFA inform Belgium midfielder Steven Defour that he will only serve a one-game suspension following his red card against South Korea.

FIFA have confirmed that Steven Defour will be suspended for just one of Belgium's World Cup matches.

The midfielder was red carded for a challenge that he made on South Korea's Kim Shin-Wook last week, which had prompted the game's governing body to consider a longer ban.

However, following a meeting, it has been decided that the 26-year-old will only be made to sit out one encounter.

As a result, Belgium head coach Marc Wilmots will have to make do without Defour's services against USA tomorrow, but he will be available for the quarter-finals, should the Red Devils qualify.
