    Italian soccer player Paolo Di Canio was suspended for one game on Tuesday for making a fascist salute to fans during a match last weekend. Di Canio was also fined $11,977 by the Italian Soccer League. The 37-year-old forward will miss Lazio's match at Lecce on Wednesday. "It was a political sentence, it was an unjust decision," Di Canio told a Rome radio station.
