Neymar definitely does not enjoy playing Colombia. Nearly a year after he suffered a fractured Vertebra during the World Cup now Brazil’s captain was shown a red card against Colombia in the ongoing Copa America.
The incident occurred after the full-time when, when Neymar kicked the ball in anguish which ended up hitting one of the Colombian player. Jeison Murillo tried to confront Neymar following the act and the Barcelona star attempted a cheeky head-butt on the only goal scorer on the night, Murrilo.
It got even uglier when Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca got in to the act and forcefully pushed Neymar away. Bacca’s brute force can be felt when you will watch the following video. Amid the act, both Neymar and Bacca were shown red cards for their stupid behavior.

Neymar’s red card has once against dented Brazil’s hope of winning a major trophy. Brazil suffered a terrible Semi Final (7-1) fate against Germany in Neymar’s absence and after this red card, Brazil will be without their influential player in the quarter finals if they manage to reach there.
Neymar had an off day against Colombia as the 23-year old star was lose in his touches and his skills wre not helping him either. He picked his yellow card of the tournament which had automatically ruled him out of Brazil’s next game against Venezuela.
However, after getting a direct red card, Neymar will now miss the Quarter Final clash as well. Brazil must get a draw or better result against Venezuela in their next game to have any chance of qualifying for the second round of Copa America 2015, or else it will be curtains for the Samba boys.
