World Cup 2014: Injured Neymar thanks Brazil fans for support

Brazil star Neymar says it is a "very tough moment" to be out of the 2014 World Cup through injury, but thanks the fans for supporting him.

The 22-year-old fractured a vertebra in his spine after being kneed in the back by Juan Zuniga during Brazil's 2-1 quarter-final victory over Colombia.

Neymar adds that he is "sure" Brazil will win the tournament without him, as they prepare to face Germany in the semi-finals.
