Lomónaco, 21 years old, was involved in a sports betting case when he was a Red Bull Bragantino player, which earned him a one-year suspension in the neighboring country.

The Brazilian court made a request to FIFA for the penalty to cross borders, which became effective this Monday with the sanction communicated by FIFA.
