Andy King will serve a two-match Euro 2016 qualifying ban for his red card against Cyprus, the Football Association of Wales has announced.

The Leicester midfielder was shown a straight red card for fouling Cyprus captain Constantinos Makridis in Wales' 2-1 win at the Cardiff City Stadium on October 13.

UEFA has increased King's suspension for violent conduct and the 25-year-old will now miss Wales' away games in Belgium next month and in Israel in March.
