Copa America: Jesus banned, Neymar angry

Brazil striker, Neymar, has lambasted the South American football body, CONMEBOL, after it confirmed his team-mate Gabriel Jesus, will be suspended for the Copa America final.

This is due to a red card Jesus received during their 1-0 quarter-final win over Chile.

CONMEBOL announced on Tuesday it suspended Jesus for two matches.
