Brazilian footballer and the most loved player, Neymar will reportedly miss the remaining of the Copa America 2015. On 18th June 2015, when Brazil were playing vs Colombia, the 23 year old Brazilian forward was shown the red card and sent off for starting the fight against Colombia. The fan favorite kicked a ball so hard at Pablo Armero who plays no.7 in frustration and anger, causing Armero to lose balance and fall on his front. As soon as the footballer kicked the ball, Colombia’s Carlos Bacca couldn’t control his temper, and shoved Neymar pretty badly. The referree then sent both the players off by showing them red card after the final whistle.
The Barcelona forward will now not only miss the upcoming game against Venezuela on Sunday in Chile, but also the remaining 4 games. He was reported banned for one match only, but afterwards the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) reviewed the case and decided to increase the punishment as such behaviour in not accepted in the football world. This was Brazil’s first defeat after losing big time in the World Cup 2014. The South American Football Confederation aka CONMEBOL is the governing body that controls the football association in South America. It is best known for being one of FIFA – The Fédération Internationale de Football Association’s 6 continental confederations.
Now that the Brazialian captain is currently banned, will the national team lose the remaining games? Or will the Brazlian football team train harder and win the remaining games? Lets hope for the best. The team have improved their performance big time after losing to Germany and The Netherlands in the world cup last year. It may not be easy after losing Neymar for Copa America but nothing is impossible right? Together as a team, the national club could end up winning the remaining games. According to the latest reports, Brazil manager Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, best known as Dunga is thinking of handing Robson de Souza, more commonly known as Robinh aka Robinho a start on Sunday match against Venezuela so he could cope with the absense of the team captain.
