FIFA Considering Lifting Thiago Silva Ban Ahead Of Tuesday’s Match

Thiago Silva earned his second yellow card of the World Cup when he interfered with Colombian keeper David Ospina. According to rules, if one receives two yellow cards during the tournament, an automatic suspension will be incurred for the next match. Brazil is set to face Germany next in the World Cup semifinals and has now asked that FIFA lift the ban on their captain.

A FIFA spokesperson said on Sunday that the disciplinary committee is “analyzing material” related to the offense that has been submitted by Brazil.

If FIFA does not overturn the ban — which they absolutely shouldn’t — the host country would be without Silva. To make matters even worse, Neymar is also out of the World Cup after he suffered a fractured vertebrae.

It’s going to be an uphill battle either way for Brazil to get to, and win, the World Cup Final.

They play Germany at 4pm ET on ESPN on Tuesday.
