No Arsenio Love for Angola after suspension

September 30, 2006

LUANDA, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Angolan striker Arsenio Love, who competed at the recent World Cup finals, has been handed a 60-day suspension for a vicious tackle on an opponent, the Angolan Football federation said on Saturday.

The AS Aviacao forward has been banned from appearing in domestic GiraBola championship matches for two months but he has been selected for his country's African Nations Cup qualifier against Kenya in Luanda on October 8.

Love badly injured Primeiro Agosto player Vado in a tackle in a league match in May, just before the start of the World Cup in Germany.
