South African under-23 international defender Nasief Morris has been slapped with a temporary ban by soccer's international governing body Fifa, according to the BBC sports web site.
The 22-year old Capetonian's suspension comes after the referee who officiated at the Olympic qualifier against Zambia in February reported that Morris attempted to attack him after the final whistle.
Zambia beat Amaglug-glug 2-1 and an infuriated Morris charged at the official, who raised his hands in a celebratory manner after the final whistle, indicating victory for the Junior Chipolopolo.
Morris, who plays for Greek giants Panathinaikos, can not play for his team in the domestic league, friendlies or in any international matches until Fifa make their final decision in a month's time.
The under-23 team are out of contention to qualify for Athens 2004 after losing 2-1 to Ghana on Saturday, and with Morris's 23rd birthday coming up on April 16, the former Santos defender will be ineligible to represent Bafana Bafana's feeder team.
