Brazil will appeal Neymar's four-game suspension that rules him out of the rest of the Copa America.
Brazil coach Dunga said on Saturday that his confederation's ''legal department will file a counterpoint to Neymar's sanction.''
Dunga said in a news conference in Santiago that Neymar had a huge importance in football, and therefore the sanctions against him were also huge. Dunga said Brazil was seeking only ''what's fair.''
A CONMEBOL disciplinary panel on Friday also fined Neymar $100,000 for being sent off after the final whistle of Brazil's 1-0 loss to Colombia on Wednesday. He was red-carded for kicking the ball at an opponent, appeared to head-butt another player, and confronted the referee.
