Neymar handed four-match ban
Posted on: June 20, 2015, 04:44:46 AM
The Barcelona Star and Brazilian man (Neymar) has recently been banned for 4 matches following the straight red card for his role in a brawl with Jeison Murillo and Carlos Bacca after Brazil's Copa América loss against Colombia on Wednesday.

Brazil coach Dunga will have to make do without the services of Neymar for the remainder of the Copa America, with the attacker handed a four-game suspension.

The Barcelona star was shown a straight red card for his role in a brawl with Jeison Murillo and Carlos Bacca after Brazil's Copa América loss against Colombia on Wednesday and has consequently been banned for four matches as well as a $10,000 fine.

He had previously already picked up his second yellow card of the tournament in the 1-0 defeat versus the Colombians.

Neymar will thus miss Brazil's final Group C match versus Venezuela on Sunday, while he is also out of any potential knockout stage match. Brazil have the right to appeal the decision to Conmebol, the South American governing body, on Saturday morning.

The 23-year-old was in fine form in the Selecao's 2-1 opening win over Peru, scoring once and setting up Douglas Costa's opener. He was unable to replicate that form versus Jose Pékerman's men, though, as they were beaten 1-0.

Neymar's absence means Philippe Coutinho or Douglas Costa could make Dunga's starting XI for the remainder of the tournament
