Copa America final: Gabriel Jesus banned from facing Argentina
Brazil striker, Gabriel Jesus, is banned for Saturday’s Copa America final.
The Manchester City star was handed a two-game ban by South American football’s governing body CONMEBOL.
Jesus was shown a red card for a foul on Eugenio Mena in Brazil’s 1-0 win over Chile in the quarter-final of the competition on Friday.
He sat out their 1-0 win over Peru in the semi-final and will now miss the final against Argentina on Saturday.
CONMEBOL also confirmed Jesus has been fined $5,000.
Everton came in for Jesus against Peru, with Lucas Paqueta scoring the winning goal, following fantastic work from Neymar.
