Zuniga's challenge could have left me paralyzed: Neymar
July 11 , 2014
Brazil’s Neymar was in tears as he claimed that he could have been paralyzed after the tackle that forced him out of the World Cup.
The 22-year-old Barcelona forward, who fractured a vertebra when the knee of Colombia's Juan Zuniga struck him in the back during the quarter-final match, said: “If it had been another two centimeters I could be in a wheelchair today.”
The Brazilian star, however, said that he did not hate or hold a grudge against Zuniga.
