Raul Meireles will have to wait until next week to find out whether his appeal has been upheld, with the commission waiting to review "images of the incident from every angle". "The referee's accusations are outrageous and defamatory. I have an eight-year-old child, can you imagine if kids start saying your father spat at a referee?," said Meireles.
