06/07/2014 from:SNTV


Brazil star Neymar spoke on Saturday after he was ruled out of the World Cup with a broken bone in his back sustained in the 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia on Friday.


SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Neymar, Brazilian winger:

"Brazilian folks -- both fellow players and technical staff -- as well as fans. Well, it's a very difficult moment. It lacks words to express what's going on through my mind, through my heart right now. I just wanted to say that I will be back as soon as possible. When you least expect, I will be back. I would like to thank all the support, all the love that you have been having to me. For all the messages, for everything. I want to say that my dream is not over yet. It was stopped due to a play. But it remains. Rest assure that my team mates will do everything for me fulfil my dream. To be champion. My dream was also to play in a World Cup final but this time it will not be possible. But rest assure that they will win this one and Brazil will be champions. I will be a champion and I will be with them as well. And we, Brazilians, will be celebrating with all of this. Thanks. See you."
