To say Neymar lost his cool following Brazil’s 1-0 loss to Colombia in the Copa America would be an understatement as the Brazilian captain was shown a straight red following his actions at the end of the match and now, the Barcelona forward faces a one match ban.
Following a heated ending to the match, Neymar apparently kicked the ball at a Colombian before attempting to head-butt another. Neymar who had been booked during the match was then shown a straight red for his role in the post-match fracas. The Brazilian icon was handed a provisional one match ban but could see it increased as the Conmebol disciplinary committee is set to meet on Friday to decide on whether or not to increase Neymar’s suspension.
Whatever the outcome of the disciplinary committee’s hearing , Neymar would miss Brazil’s final group game against Venezuela.
