Oumar Niasse: Everton striker banned for two games for diving

Published

Everton striker Oumar Niasse has been banned for two matches after being found guilty of diving.

The Senegal forward is the first Premier League player to be punished under the new Football Association laws, which were introduced in May.

Niasse won a controversial penalty, under pressure from Scott Dann, during Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

The 27-year-old will miss Everton’s game at Southampton on Sunday and at home to West Ham on 29 November.

Niasse denied he had « committed an act of simulation » that led to the penalty being awarded in the fifth minute of the game.

Leighton Baines converted from the spot, and Niasse later scored his side’s second equaliser at Selhurst Park.

The FA’s Independent Regulatory Commission, which includes former players, found the striker guilty of the charge when they met on Wednesday.

Incidents which suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation are referred to a panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player.

They review video footage independent to each other and the FA only issues a charge if the panel are in unanimous in agreeing there was simulation.

Carlisle forward Shaun Miller was the first to be banned, when he was suspended for two games in October.

Bristol City defender Bailey Wright was suspended for two games earlier this month, while Manchester City forward Bernardo Silva and Watford’s Richarlison have both avoided charges this season.
