Neymar ruled out of the World Cup

Brazil’s doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirmed Neymar is ruled out for four to six weeks with a back injury and will not be able to play at the World Cup.

“It’s not serious in the sense that it doesn’t need surgery, but he’ll need to immobilise it to recover. Unfortunately, he’s not going to be able to play.”

Neymar left the pitch on a stretcher after being knocked down by Juan Zuniga.

Brazil are set for a clash with Germany in the semi-finals, but will need to find a replacement for their star boy Neymar, who scored four goals in five previous games.
