It's too bad seeing this great player go down. Brazil vs Germany is going to be a really competitive game now that they've lost Neymar!
AP On Friday, Neymar’s World Cup came to a sickening end. An 88th minute challenge from Colombia’s Juan Camilo Zúñiga left the Brazilian stretched flat on the pitch, unable to move. The stretcher came and Neymar was carried away, leaving Brazil to ultimately secure their 2-1 victory.
Later that night came the news: Brazil might be headed for the semi-final, but Neymar wouldn’t be with them. The foul had fractured one of his vertebrae, ruling him out for four to six weeks.
But initially, Neymar and his teammates feared it to be much, much worse.
