Brazilian fans are still struggling to cope with the news that their star player, Neymar, will miss the remainder of their World Cup campaign with a back injury sustained in last night’s quarter-final against Colombia.
ITV revealed on social media website Instagram, the Brazilian headline Uma pancada no Brasil, which translates as: A blow in Brazil. The newspaper echo’s the feeling within the county that Brazil’s hopes of winning a first World Cup on home soil rested firmly on the Barcelona forward, who has scored four goals at the tournament.
His injury massively overshadowed Brazil’s 2-1 victory, which means that they will meet Germany in the semi-finals. Colombia defender Juan Zuniga, who fractured the striker’s vertebra with his poor challenge, has received racial abuse and death threats on social media.
