Four French players in hot water after Euro 2012
France internationals Samir Nasri, Hatem ben Arfa, Yann M'Vila and Jeremy Menez will face a disciplinary commission over their behaviour during the European Championship 2012.
French Football Federation president Noël Le Graët said Tuesday that the four would be dealt with "as soon as possible.''
Nasri landed himself in hot water after a launching a foul-mouthed rant at a journalist following France's 2-0 defeat to Spain in the quarter-finals. Menez is in trouble for insulting a referee in the same match and M'Vila and Ben Arfa will have to answer for their poor attitude towards the team and coach Laurent Blanc.
