FIFA said on Thursday that it has opened disciplinary proceedings against Marco Materazzi for his conduct in World Cup final and had summoned Zinedine Zidane and the Italy defender to attend a hearing of its disciplinary committee July 20. A decision is expected later that day.

Former France captain Zinedine Zidane and Italy defender Marco Materazzi were both fined and banned by FIFA on Thursday after their clash during the 2006 FIFA World Cup final in Berlin on July 9.

The punishment was announced at a meeting of the five-man FIFA Disciplinary Committee in Zurich, which heard Zidane's explanations on the head-butting incident.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee imposed a three-match ban and a fine of 7,500 Swiss francs (about 6,000 U.S. dollars) on Zidane on account of his head-butt to Materazzi's chest.
