The Brazilian ended up fracturing his vertebrae in Friday's game against Colombia and I am now finding it difficult to envision Brazil going on to win the tournament.
Yes, I know there is more than one man on a team, but Neymar was the best player for most of the games that have already been played.
Now they must face a German side that isn't too shabby. They're going to need to step things up and play better than they did in the 2-1 win against Colombia.
I'm not writing them off. Not completely.
