Neymar out of World Cup [Video]

Brazilian star Neymar has been ruled out of the rest of the World Cup due to injury, dealing a major blow to the host country in their bid to take this year’s trophy.

The striker was taken off in a stretcher late in Friday’s quarter final match after taking a knee to the back from Colombia defender Juan Zuniga.

The Brazilian team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar had fractured a vertebra in his back adding that he would not have to have surgery, but would now need “a few weeks” to recover.
