The Brazilian ace has had his suspension extended, and Dunga's side will have to be without their star

Brazil captain Neymar will miss the remainder of the Copa America after CONMEBOL increased his suspension to four matches on Friday.

In addition to the ban, Neymar was given a $10,000 fine.

The Barca star was originally given a two-match ban after he received yellow cards in two straight matches followed by a sending off in Brazil's 1-0 loss to Colombia on Wednesday.

First CONMEBOL reduced the ban to one game but during a disciplinary board hearing it was reported that Neymar verbally abused an official in the tunnel.

Brazil still have right to appeal the ban.
