The referee booked Gerrard during the game. Once the referee has dealt with the situation it is very rare that the governing bodies get involved because it undermines referees if they overturn or change the decision.

However, I thought Gerrard should have been sent off and subsequently banned for 3 games.

Rooney played our 1st game of the season though :confused:

I do remember him being sent off though

But yes, Gerrard should get in trouble for this.
It was a delayed suspension...possibly because he appealed against the decision. I remember him threatening to pull out of all England merchandising & marketing campaigns if the FA refused to reverse the decision.

He missed the next 3 games because of that red card though.
