Saulius Mikoliunas has been suspended for Lithuania´s next two Euro 2008 qualifying games after UEFA found him guilty of diving to win his country´s penalty against Scotland.

The Hearts midfielder threw himself over a challenge from Darren Fletcher, without the Scotland man making contact, and tricked referee Damir Skomina into awarding a spot-kick in the Hampden match on September 8.

Lithuania levelled from the spot but late goals allowed Scotland to win 3-1.
