Brazil is through to the semifinal. Though fans won’t feel too much relief. Captain Thiago Silva earned a suspension for a dumb yellow card. Neymar was stretchered off in the 88th minute, after taking a knee to the back.
UPDATE: According to Brazil’s team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, Neymar suffered a fractured vertebra and is out of the World Cup. Prior to the doctor’s statement, Brazil coach Phil Scolari said, “I think Neymar won’t be able to play. Everyone knows he’s going to be hunted, for three matches that has been happening.”
