What an incredible whitewashing of what actually happened! Zuniga was running full tilt, jumped, and kneed Neymar in the back. Neymar had his back to him, so he never saw Zuniga coming, so he was totally unprepared for the shot. This should have been a red card. Horrendous officiating, despicable reporting from Reuters!

It was absurd, savagery. Colombian player should have been punished! Punishment is a way to say NO to any kind of violence in sport.

Injuries happen because of the nature of this sometimes violent sport. It’s not like Brazil players never make the same moves. Neymar didn’t become Brazil’s favorite player by being polite on the field.
