Neymar is carried off the field in tears after being kneed in the back by Columbia’s Juan Camilo Zuniga in the 86th minute of a quarterfinal game on July 4, 2014. Neymar was taken to a nearby clinic and released. Although he is not expected to need surgery, he is is unable to compete in the rest of the World Cup. Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar says:
He will not be in condition to play, he will need a few weeks to be fit again. He is very, very sad.
