The Uruguay Football Association have written to FIFA complaining about vice-president Jim Boyce's comments in relation to Luis Suarez.

On Tuesday, Boyce, who is Britain's representative on FIFA, voiced his concerns regarding recent incidents of players going to ground easily in an attempt to win penalties.

"I watched the latest Suarez incident (against Stoke last weekend) two or three times and to me it is nothing less than a form of cheating," said Boyce. "It is becoming a little bit of a cancer within the game and I believe if it is clear to everyone that it is simulation then that person is trying to cheat and they should be severely punished for that."
