Brazil in semis; lose Neymar with broken vertebrae

Fortaleza: A David Luiz blockbusting dipping free-kick from 30 meters took Brazil into World Cup semis for the first time in 12 years with a 2-1 victory over Colombia sending the 60,342-strong crowd in Estadio Castelao into raptures. But they lost star striker Neymar, kneed in the spine by defender Juan Camilo Zuniga. Captain Thiago Silva, who bundled home a Neymar corner for the opener, will be suspended against Germany after being yellow-carded for barging into keeper Ospina. Carlos Bacca was upended by Julio Cesar, for James Rodriguez to score his 6th goal, making him the first player after Peruvian legend Teofilo Cubillas to score in his first 5 WC matches.
