The Barcelona forward will miss the rest of the Copa America after being suspended for four games.

The 23-year-old was shown a red card for clashing with Colombian players following Brazil defeat and was initially banned for one game, ruling him out of the final group match on Sunday.

However the South American Football Confederation has now reviewed the case and increased the punishment, meaning Neymar will miss the rest of the tournament.

Neymar was shown the red card after kicking a ball Pablo Armero in frustration after the final whistle before appearing to head butt another player who confronted him.

The absence of Neymar is a huge blow to Brazil and their manager Dunga. The team has been built around the superstar and in his absence the likes of Philippe Coutinho, impressive to date, Diego Tardelli and Fred will have to step up.
Venezuala are the lowest ranked team in the world and followed up their surprise opening round win over Colombia with a narrow defeat to Peru.

They will also be missing a key man on Sunday with Fernando Amorebieta suspended following his red card against Peru with Gabriel Cichero coming in.

In the last two tournaments they have reached the last 8 and final four and a win, or potentially a draw, would see them reach the knock out stages once more.
