Neymar Comforted by Brazil Team-Mates as He Leaves for Hospital: Video Footage

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJune 6, 2016

The Brazilian Football Federation have released footage of Neymar's team-mates comforting the forward before he headed off to the hospital.

The 22-year-old suffered a fractured vertebra during the nation's win over Colombia in the World Cup quarter-finals.

It means that despite the victory, the country has been in some shock—and you can see in the faces of his team-mates, including the likes of David Luiz and Thiago Silva, that it was a shock to the squad as well.

Brazil's semi-final is against Germany on Tuesday.
