London: Sunderland defender Wes Brown has had the red card he received away to Stoke City last weekend overturned by an independent regulatory commission, the Football Association announced Tuesday.

"With regard to Brown, who was dismissed for serious foul play during Saturday's game at Stoke City, the claim (for wrongful dismissal) was upheld," an FA statement said.

"As a result, his three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect."
