Hannover's Pogatetz banned for 3 games


FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Hannover defender Emanuel Pogatetz has been banned for three matches over an incident in last Friday's 1-0 home win over Nuremberg.

The German football federation says Pogatetz intentionally punched Nuremberg's Philipp Wollscheid. The referee missed the incident, but the federation used video replays to ban the Austrian.

Pogatetz will miss Bundesliga matches at Hertha Berlin, at Mainz and against Stuttgart,
