The CBF to appeal Neymar's four-match ban on Monday

The CBF to appeal Neymar's four-match ban on Monday

As things stand the forward will miss the rest of the Copa América but the CBF is trying to reduce his ban.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) will present their appeal against the four-game ban imposed on Neymar, who will miss the rest of the tournament, on Monday.

After the CBF present their arguments in trying to reduce the ban to three games, the CONMEBOL Appeals Chamber will have 24 hours to give their answer.

Neymar was hit with a four-game ban after his side’s 1-0 defeat against Colombia, owing to an accumulation of yellow cards and his part in the brawl that took place after the match in Santiago.

The striker struck a ball at Colombian Pablo Armero after the final whistles, tried headbutting Jeison Murillo and, as per the match report released by CONMEBOL, insulted Chilean referee Enrique Osses.

Dunga has allowed the player to decide whether to stay in Chile for the tournament or go on holiday in the event that CONMEBOL keep the four-game ban as it is.
