Jesus gets two-month Brazil ban for Copa antics

Gabriel Jesus defended teammate Neymar following claims Brazil no longer need him.
Gabriel Jesus said Lionel Messi was wrong to question the authorities following Argentina's semifinal defeat to Brazil in Copa America.

Striker Gabriel Jesus has been suspended from international matches with Brazil for two months because of bad behavior in the latest Copa America final.

The governing body of South American football, CONMEBOL, also announced Wednesday that it fined the 22-year-old Jesus $30,000 for actions it considers insulting and defamatory during Brazil's 3-1 win over Peru in the July 7 decider.

Jesus was sent off after a second yellow card at the 70-minute mark in the South American cup final.

The Manchester City forward protested the decision with hand gestures suggesting the referee had been paid off and then pushed the video assistant referee feed on the sidelines.

Brazil and Jesus can still appeal the decision.

If the punishment stands, Jesus will miss Brazil's friendlies against Colombia and Peru in September. He could also be sidelined for another two matches in October.

CONMEBOL's decision is the second involving a high-profile player after it had banned Argentina's Lionel Messi for three months from international matches following the Barcelona star's accusations of corruption at the Copa America. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
