Neymar has been the greatest tragedy of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The hero of the Brazilian team, the hope of a nation, is out of the World Cup with a fracture to his spine. Brazilian fans and true football fans are lamenting the news that Neymar will be out for the tournament. The Brazilian superstar shared a message to fans today on Youtube in which he tearfully thanked everyone for the outpouring of support and promised to return to the field as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the man responsible for Neymar's injury has received anything but support. Media from Brazil to Spain have attacked the Colombian player Camilo Zuñiga. In an article entitled "Zúñiga, the Loneliest and Most Hated Of Footballers", newspaper Efe says the explosion of aggressiveness and hatred attributed to football fans seems evidence to convict the Colombian as "the most hated by 200 million Brazilians, a demon that deserves the hatred of who threaten and abuse him on social networks."

Zuñiga has received thousands of insulting messages, many of them in Portuguese, which have taken over the comments on the photos on the Instagram account of the footballer, some even threatening his little daughter. Given this level of aggression, tags like #ZúñigaEstamosContigo became trending topics yesterday as a show of solidarity. FIFA is investigating the incident from all angles provided by television cameras - the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) has requested he received at least a nine game ban, as with Luis Suarez.
