Little Anna Bella of Brazil speaks for everyone when it comes to the 2014 World Cup. 

After Brazilian star Neymar suffered a fractured vertebrae vs. Colombia, ruling him out against the team's matchup vs. Germany, the one-and-a-half-year-old girl was devastated to hear the news.

We feel your pain, Anna Bella.


The Colombian newspaper Hoy went for an angry, NSFW front page in reaction to its team's 2-1 defeat to Brazil in the World Cup quarter-final.

"Spanish referee," the headline begins, before descending into a torrent of abuse.

To cut a long story short, the insult translates roughly to: "Son of the b---h who gave birth to you."

Referee Velasco Carballo came under criticism during the game for seemingly letting a lot of uncompromising Brazilian challenges go unpunished.


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.

Dwight Howard is going to celebrate this Fourth of July the right way.

On Friday, the Houston Rockets star showed off an extensive fireworks collection. Based on the video, it looks like he is more than prepared to celebrate the United States' birthday.

When you play in Texas, it's go big or go home.

You'd think if a giant bug was on you, you'd be able to feel it. However, Colombia's James Rodriguez was too busy celebrating his second-half goal against Brazil to notice a huge bug on his right arm.

Seriously, just look at the size of the bug.

It's a good thing Rodriguez didn't go to kiss his bicep because he would've been in for quite the surprise.

The 2014 World Cup has seen many exceptional goals, but David Luiz's free kick to put Brazil 2-0 up against Colombia in the World Cup quarter-final is in that company.

The former Chelsea defender stroked the ball in, but imparted such swerve that goalie David Ospina had little chance of stopping it.

The game didn't end there, though. Shortly thereafter, Colombia got one back.

United States men's national team keeper Tim Howard's performance against Belgium in the 2014 FIFA World Cup was one for the ages.

Howard was so good that he was able to keep Belgium off the board in regulation and help Team USA force extra time. For those who don't want to watch the entire match, most likely because it doesn't end well for the United States, there's a GIF that quickly shows just how great Howard was during the match.

Take a moment to watch all of Howard's record-setting 16 saves at the same time and realize just how great he was against Belgium.

McNair put together a fantastic 13-year career in the NFL. He played for two franchises, the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans and the Baltimore Ravens, during his career.

Throughout his career, McNair was one of the best quarterbacks in the league. The mobile quarterback made three Pro Bowls and shared the 2003 NFL Most Valuable Player award with Peyton Manning.

Although McNair never won a Super Bowl, he led his team to the playoffs five times. Of course, he was the quarterback for the Titans in the dramatic 1999 Super Bowl.


If you are going to use body paint as a fan, you might as well go all out.

One Brazil fan took things to the next level for Brazil's match against Colombia in the quarterfinals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Neymar may get the most attention, but this fan is all about Hulk.

As it turns out, there was another pretty big Hulk fan in the stadium:

Nothing says "'Merica" like a mascot rocking out with a giant United States flag.
