Brazilian match-winner Ronaldinho will learn on Sunday whether he has a chance of playing in the World Cup final should his country get there.
The striker scored the decisive goal as Brazil beat England 2-1 to reach the semi-finals, but he was sent off in the second-half for a foul on Danny Mills.
He now stands to serve an automatic two-game suspension for the red card shown to him by Mexican referee Filipe Ramos Rizo.
But the Brazil camp feel that this penalty would be too harsh.
"It wasn't a foul worthy of a red card," said Ronaldinho. "I hope I will get just a one-match suspension, but now we have to wait and see.
Fifa have confirmed that it will discuss the pending suspension on Sunday.
"Whether it is extended or not will be discussed on Sunday when the disciplinary committee meets," said FIFA communications director Keith Cooper.
Ronaldinho, meanwhile, says he intended to score the goal which saw his side into the World Cup semi-finals on Friday.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker beat England goalkeeper David Seaman with a 42-yard free-kick to give Brazil a lead they never looked like giving up.
"I thought he mis-kicked the free-kick," Seaman said afterwards.
"It was a freak goal that was a cross that ended up in the net," England captain David Beckham added.
Ronaldinho, however, denies these charges.
"Cafu had alerted me to the fact that their keeper was standing off his line," the 22-year-old said afterwards.
"As I was about to take the free-kick, I saw where he was and was able to beat him."
