Silva, who scored in the seventh minute of Brazil's 2-1 win over Colombia in the quarterfinals of the World Cup, picked up a yellow card in the 64th minute and he will be ineligible to face Germany in the semifinals.

Silva got the card for running into Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina as he was trying to punt the ball out, a remarkably dumb foul for a player already on one yellow card. Brazil advanced to the semis, but it will have to try to reach the final without one of their starting centerbacks.
