Which punishment best suits Pepe's headbutt?

Pepe’s red card was one of the most contentious moments so far at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as he literally, not figuratively, butted heads with the Germans. How should Pepe be punished?

Pepe’s red card was one of the most contentious moments so far at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as he headbutted Germany's Thomas Muller.

The Portugal defender's cranium made contact with Muller after the attacker made a meal out of Pepe’s somewhat light hand to his face (no duels were challenged nor accepted in this moment).

Opinion has been divided on whether Pepe’s card was deserved, or if Muller incited it with his actions. 

But we want to know what punishment best suits Pepe's crime. Vote in our poll and share your thoughts below.
