Turkey's first choice goalkeeper Volkan Demirel has been suspended for two international matches following his sending off in the epic Group A win over the Czech Republic, UEFA said Wednesday.

The match saw the Turks come from 2-0 down to win 3-2, scoring twice in the last three minutes but Demirel was red-carded in the final seconds for pushing over a Czech player.

UEFA, European football's governing body, said the Turkish Football Federation had appealed but there was as yet no date to hear their appeal.

UEFA also fined the Turks 44,000 Swiss francs (27,190 euros) for poor behaviour during a frenetic encounter, noting the presence of 25 on-accredited people in the Turkish dressing room following the game.

The Turkish Federation has also appealed against the fine.

Veteran Rustu Recber is to replace Demirel for Friday's quarter-final against Turkey.
