Brazilian Sports Star Neymar Faces Lumbar Fracture At FIFA

The FIFA is being pressurized by the Brazil’s soccer federation to take strict actions against the Columbian player Zuniga being responsible for the severe injury that sidelined the top player of the team, Neymar, for entire World cup. Although the player sustained the fracture during the match but was later announced by the doctors of his lumbar fracture being severe and that he would not be playing in the later tournament. The injury has exasperated the Brazilians. Recently on Saturday the Brazilian federation, known as CBF, displayed evidences which was the presumably video and in support documentation, to the disciplinary committee of FIFA and demanded actions.

“Neymar sustained a lumbar fracture when he was kneed in the back by Colombia defender Juan Camilo Zuniga late in their FIFA World Cup quarterfinal match Saturday in Brasilia. Brazil won the game, 2-1, but announced afterward that Neymar would miss the rest of the tournament.”

Although Zuniga was called for foul yet wasn’t given any yellow card on the field therefore the committee is said to be responsible for any kind of potential supplementary discipline. The Brazilian News media had reported breathlessly of his injury in hours since the incident happened and one of the best sports stars fell to turf in definite pain and then was carried on a stretcher from the field. Zuniga informed the reporters immediately after the match that he only considered the play "a normal challenge as part of the game; we both wanted to win the ball and we both went in a little strong." The defender further stated that he did not go into the thing in hope of fracturing Neymar’s back. The accident was absolutely coincidental and not intended. The match referee Carlos of Spain has come under heavy criticism which was considered to the most physical of the tournament having 54 foul whistles.
