Fifa will look into the red card given to Wayne Rooney last night.
Roo was sent off after 62 minutes for an apparent stamp on defender Ricardo Carvalho. Obviously the standard 1 game ban for the red card will stand; therefore Rooney should miss Steve McLaren's first game in charge.
A Fifa spokesman said: 'Wayne Rooney got a direct red card so he will automatically be suspended.
'It will be a disciplinary case. Like any player the committee will decide on the penalty.'
Fifa have also confirmed the reason for the straight red, Rooney being dismissed under Law 12: Violent conduct.
