Brazil have confirmed they will appeal against the four-game suspension which has ruled t Neymar out of the Copa America.
Neymar was banned for headbutting after the final whistle in Brazil’s 1-0 midweek defeat to Colombia
The Brazil captain was initially banned for one game after being sent-off for kicking the ball at Colombia’s Pablo Armero. The incident sparked a mass brawl and Neymar headbutted another opposition player for which he received the extra sanction.
In addition to his ban a South American confederation disciplinary panel also fined the 23-year-old $10,000 (£8,800).
Brazil coach Dunga said:
“We don’t want anything in our favour, we don’t want anything against us, we just want it to be balanced. There should just be an equal judgement for everyone in the tournament.”
Group C is finely balanced with Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela all level on one win and one defeat so far.
