No, No Neymar! Suspended for Two More Games


Brazil will be without it’s most popular player (and captain) Neymar, for another two games.

Neymar was suspended for four games on June 17th following a 1-0 loss to Colombia. There were a couple things that led to his suspension.

1. Received a yellow card for a handball after a blocked attempt on goal

2. Kicked the ball at opponent Pablo Armero

3. Tried to headbutt opponent Jeison Murillo, receiving a red card

4. Supposedly verbally abused referee after the game heading into the dressing room tunnel

Well, I guess that will do it.

Neymar was originally suspended two games, until news broke about the verbal abuse. Brazil went on to play Venezuela and won 2-1. They then lost 4-3 to Paraguay thus knocking them out of the tournament.

What a loss for Brazil.

However, if you need Neymar back for a game, this match up with Argentina on November 17th would be the one. Hint, Hint: Messi.

Okay Neymar… Please keep your hands, feet, head and words to yourself. We want to see you on the field in November!
