Brazil to appeal against Silva ban

Brazil are appealing against the one-match ban handed out to defender Thiago Silva after the 29-year-old picked up his second yellow card of the World Cup in the quarter-final win over Colombia on Friday, reports the Independent.

Having been booked in the group stage draw with Mexico, Silva was penalised by referee Carlos Velasco Carballo for preventing Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina from taking a kick, and shown a yellow card, which is set to keep him out of Tuesday’s semi-final against Germany.


FIFA spokeswoman Delia Fischer announced on Sunday that the host nation had lodged an appeal. She said: "I can confirm we have received an appeal from the CBF and this is being analysed."


A decision from the FIFA disciplinary committee is expected later on Monday, although the chances of the appeal being successful are slim, as yellow cards are not usually rescinded by football’s governing bodies.


The Paris St. Germain star is set to watch from the sidelines as well as Neymar, who was ruled out for the rest of the tournament after sustaining an injury against Colombia, but one positive for Brazil is that Willian has declared himself fit following a back problem.
