A look at the best quotes of Saturday 5th July in football, as Neymar is ruled out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup with injury.
It has been a busy day in the world of football, with the undoubted top story being the fact that Brazilian superstar Neymar will miss the rest of the World Cup with a fractured vertebrae after a challenge by Juan Zuniga in their quarter final win over Colombia.
Zuniga has been in apologetic mood, but claims that he did not mean to cause any injury to the Barcelona player, a view not shared by all in the host nation.
Elsewhere, Argentina made it through to the semi-final of the World Cup with a win over Belgium, but Lionel Messi and company did not impress defeated manager Marc Wilmots.
It has also been a good day for Arsenal fans, who have seen right back Mathieu Debuchy all-but confirm his move to the Emirates Stadium in an interview with the French media.
