|Fifa to investigate Neymar incident by Nobody: 4:02pm On Jul 03, 2014|
committee is set to
examine Juan Camilo
Zuniga's challenge on
the Brazil star, which
ruled him out of the rest of the World Cup
will analyse the
Friday's World Cup quarter-final which saw Neymar suffer a broken vertebra. Colombia defender Juan Camilo
Zuniga challenged the Brazil
star from behind in the closing
stages of the game, causing the
back injury which has now
ruled the Barcelona forward out of the tournament. Zuniga insisted after the match
he did not mean to hurt
Neymar with the challenge , for which he escaped a yellow or
red card, but Fifa has since
revealed that their disciplinary
committee will examine the
incident to see if further action
should be taken. "The disciplinary committee is
analysing the matter. The spirit
of fair play is very important
and we want to avoid difficult
things on the field of play,"
said Fifa's head of media Delia Fischer at a briefing on
Saturday. Despite Zuniga's protestations
that his challenge was honest,
former Brazil striker Ronaldo
claims the Colombian has a case
to answer. "The challenge was a very
violent one – I believe there
was an intention by the
Colombian player to cause
some harm," he told reporters
in Brazil. "I don't think it was normal
football play, I don't know
whether he had planned this
beforehand but I do believe it
was very aggressive, very
violent." Goals from David Luiz and
Thiago Silva sealed a 2-1 win
for Brazil on the night that
secured their semi-final spot,
where they will face Germany.
