Incompetent UEFA overturn Eduardo's ban

They made a statement as follows:

"Following examination of all the evidence, notably the declarations of both the referee and the referees' assessor, as well as the various video footage, it was not established to the panel's satisfaction that the referee had been deceived in taking his decision on the penalty."

All of this makes one wonder why they didn't study the bloody 'evidence' before dishing out the ridiculous ban in the first place. I've no idea what political agenda they were following when they decided to sanction the player, but there can be no doubt that it's shown them up to be incompetent at best.

No doubt the press response to this announcement will be muted, unlike the initial hysteria when the incident took place - shameful.
