Brazil striker Neymar has been ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup after suffering a fractured vertebrae in their quarter-final win over Colombia on Friday, the team doctor said. Rodrigo Lasmar told Brazil's SportTV: “It's not serious in the sense that it doesn't need surgery, but he'll need to immobilize it to recover. Unfortunately, he's not going to be able to play.” Brazil face Germany in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday. Report by Lauren Hood.
