The World Cup is coming to a close with the Semi-finals starting tomorrow. Brazil and Germany will battle for a spot in the Finals on July 13th at 3pm. Unfortunately, one of the key players for Brazil will not be playing in the match or any that follow.
22 year old Brazilian Football star Neymar da Silva Santos Junior had a dream of playing in a World Cup final. Those dreams were shattered while playing in the quarter final match against Columbia last week. Columbia defender Juan Zuniga, kneed Neymar in the lower spine in the closing minutes of the game fracturing a lower vertebrae, removing Neymar from the rest of World Cup play.
Brazil was looking like a good pick for a World Cup champion team however, with the loss of their superstar, winning that trophy could be a unattainable endeavor.
