Neymar in tears; says he came close to being paralyzed

Brazil’s Neymar broke down in tears as he claims the challenge that ended his world cup came close to paralyzing him.

The Barcelona forward fractured a vertebra in his spine when he was kneed in the back by Colombia’s Juan Zuniga during Brazil’s 2-1 quarter-final win.

The 22 year-old thank god for helping him, because if the blow had been a few inches lower he would have risked being paralyzed.
