‘Shame on you!’: Dutch player suspended for spit
DUTCH U20 defender Jordan Teze has been suspended indefinitely by the Dutch FA after he spitting at a German rival.

The Jong PSV starlet chased after the unsuspecting midfielder and spat on his back.
The Netherlands Football Association condemned the action with the ban and a statement.
The said: "That's the worst thing you can do to an opponent, we cannot tolerate this action."
After the match ended 1-1 - with the Germans missing a last-minute penalty - Teze made his move.
Coach Bert Konterman apologised on the player's behalf after the draw, he said: "During this quarrel things have happened over and over again that cannot happen. There has been a spit.
"Both we and our team, Jordan himself, think that this does not belong on a football field and certainly does not belong to a player who plays for his country."
Members of the German media compared the shocking incident to the disgusting 1990 controversy when Frank Rijkaard spat at Rudi Voller.
