Brazil lodge an appeal to overturn Thiago Silva's second yellow card of the World Cup which has ruled him out of Tuesday's semi-final.

Brazil have lodged an appeal against the yellow card handed to captain Thiago Silva in Friday night's quarter-final victory against Colombia.

The 29-year-old defender received his second booking of the tournament, meaning that he is automatically suspended for the Selecao's meeting with Germany in the semi-finals.

A FIFA spokesman said in a short statement: "I can confirm we have received an appeal from the CBF and this is being analysed."

All existing yellow cards have now been wiped clean, meaning that only those handed a straight-red card will be suspended should their side reach the final.
