Rio de Janeiro - Cameroon midfielder Alex Song has been handed a three-match ban for his bizarre elbow assault on Croatia's Mario Mandzukic during their World Cup group game, FIFA announced on Monday.
The 26-year-old Barcelona midfielder was sent off after striking Mandzukic on the back during Cameroon's 4-0 thrashing in Group A last Wednesday.
Song has also been fined €16 420 for the incident.
The ban is effective immediately and rules him out of Cameroon's final group game against Brazil later Monday.
