Brazil asks FIFA to overturn Thiago Silva’s ban

The Brazilian football confederation is trying to overturn captain Thiago Silva’s ban for Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal against Germany.

FIFA spokesman Delia Fischer on Sunday said the disciplinary committee is ”analyzing material” submitted by Brazil.

Thiago Silva impeded Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina’s attempt to kick the ball downfield during Brazil’s 2-1 quarterfinal win over Colombia, picking up his second yellow card of the tournament and incurring an automatic suspension for the next match.

Yellow cards traditionally cannot be overturned.

The FIFA disciplinary code states that cautions can be canceled only in ”exceptional circumstances.”

At the 1962 World Cup, Brazil star Garrincha was sent off in the semifinals victory against host Chile, then was cleared to play in the final. Brazil beat Czechoslovakia 3-1.

Now, no player can be suspended for the final just for receiving a yellow card in the semifinals.
