Breaking News!!! Brazil’s Neymar Is Out Of World Cup

Neymar has been ruled out of the World Cup after Brazil’s team doctor confirmed he suffered a broken vertebra late in Friday’s quarterfinal victory against Colombia.

The star forward was involved in a late collision with Colombia’s Juan Camilo Zuniga in the 88th minute, and will not be available when Brazil face Germany in the semifinal on Tuesday, or for the final on July 13, should Brazil advance.

Team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar broke the third vertebra in the lumbar region of his back.

“It is a benign fracture,” Lasmar said. “This news is not easy, but he will not be available at this World Cup.

“The fracture does not require surgery. There will be a conservative treatment; [he] will need physiotherapy and comfort to ease the pain.”

Neymar had to be stretchered off against Colombia.
Before the extent of the injury was revealed, Luiz Felipe Scolari said it would be difficult for Neymar to recover in time, simply judging by the amount of pain the 22-year-old was in.

“We lost Neymar, which probably based, on what I’m seeing, he won’t be able to play,” Scolari said. “We knew he would be hunted, so we are in a difficult situation, but we have good players who can come in. I think we will have a great game.
