England - England striker Wayne Rooney's ban at next year' Euro 2012 finals was reduced from three to two games following an appeal heard by Uefa on Thursday.
The 26-year-old Manchester United striker was originally banned for three matches following his sending off for kicking opponent Miodrag Dzudovic in their final qualifier against Montenegro in October.
"The three-match suspension levelled against Wayne Rooney is now suspended, with the third game of the suspension, suspended for four years, so Wayne will be available for the final group game of the European championship against Ukraine," Adrian Bevington, the managing director of Club England, told reporters at Uefa's headquarters.
