Football: No case for Luis Suarez over Zenit incident


NYON, Switzerland (AP) - Uefa will not investigate Liverpool forward Luis Suarez over an alleged stamping incident with a Zenit St Petersburg defender.

Suarez was pictured stepping on Tomas Hubocan's back near the end of a Europa League match at Anfield last Thursday. Some commentators suggested Suarez deliberately stamped on his fallen opponent.

Referee Bjorn Kuipers, a Netherlands official on Fifa's shortlist for selection to the 2014 World Cup, did not punish Suarez.

Still, Uefa can use video evidence to review incidents.
