Gonzalo Jara banned from Copa America for poking Edinson Cavani

COMNEBOL ban Chile defender Gonzalo Jara from the rest of the Copa America for poking Edinson Cavani's backside.

Chile defender Gonzalo Jara has been suspeneded for the remainder of the Copa America and fined for poking Edinson Cavani in the backside.

Jara escaped a red card during his country's 1-0 quarter-final win over Uruguay on Wednesday after bizarrely inserting his finger up Cavani's backside.

The Paris-Saint Germain forward was given a second yellow card for flicking out at the 28-year-old in response, while Jara also appeared to feign injury.

COMNEBOL have now banned Jara for three games, meaning that the ex-West Bromwich Albion player will miss the semi-final with Peru on Monday as well as the Copa America final, should Chile progress.

Jara was also fined $7,500 (£4,775) by the South American confederation.
