Neymar out of World Cup

neymar 0507Neymar has been ruled out of the rest of the World Cup.

The Brazilian star fractured his vertebra following a strong challenge in last night's 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia.

The team doctor confirmed the news last night, after the Barcelona forward was taken to hospital following the match.

It means Brazil will be without Neymar for their semi final clash with Germany next Tuesday, as well as for any potential final appearance next weekend.
