Brazil’s Thiago Silva Out Of World Cup Semis After Yellow Card (Video)


Thiago Silva scored to put Brazil ahead in the seventh minute of Friday’s World Cup quarterfinal game against Colombia, and his team went on to win 2-1 and advance to the semifinals against Germany.

Unfortunately for Brazil, Silva won’t be available for that game after running into Colombian goalie David Ospina.

Though it likely was just a mental error on Silva’s part, the stunt drew a yellow card — his second of the tournament — so Brazil’s captain will be suspended for the next game.
