    Henrik Larsson was suspended for two games for punching an opponent in the stomach during a Swedish Cup quarterfinal last weekend.

    The Swedish Football Association's disciplinary committee ruled that the Helsingborg striker deliberately hit Elfsborg defender Jon Jonsson on Saturday because he'd held on to Larsson's jersey.

    The referee missed the incident and didn't award a foul. Jonsson left the field with stomach pains and didn't return to a match that Helsingborg won on penalty kicks.
