Gold Cup: Henry Romero & Darwin Ceren get bans after 'bites'

Henry Romero has received a six-game ban for "anti-sporting" behaviour after he appeared to bite USA striker Jozy Altidore

El Salvador defender Henry Romero received a six-game ban after he seemed to bite USA striker Jozy Altidore during their Gold Cup quarter-final.

Captain Darwin Ceren will miss three games for a similar incident involving American defender Omar Gonzalez in the USA's 2-0 win in Arlington, Texas.

Governing body Concacaf says the bans for "anti-sporting behaviour" will only affect "official matches".
