2014 World Cup Thiago Silva


7 Jul, 2014

Brazil captain Thiago Silva is suspended for the semi-final against Germany as the hosts fail to have a ban overturned after the centreback receives his second yellow card of the tournament in the 2-1 win over Colombia. After opening the scoring, he is booked for blocking Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina’s attempt to take a kick. The Brazilian football confederation wanted the second caution rescinded but FIFA said there is ‘no legal basis’ to grant the request.
