FIFA will take no action

RIO DE JANEIRO - FIFA will not take action against the Colombia player who injured Neymar and ended the Brazil star's World Cup.

FIFA said its disciplinary panel "cannot consider this matter" under the rules because the match referee saw the challenge by Camilo Zuniga.

"In this specific case, no retrospective action can be taken," FIFA said in a statement yesterday, because the incident "did not escape the match officials' attention".

In a separate decision, the panel also refused to consider a Confederation of Brazilian Football appeal against captain Thiago Silva's yellow card in the 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia on Saturday in Fortaleza.

Thiago Silva's second caution of the tournament triggered a one-match ban which he will serve in the semi-finals.

Brazil will therefore be without its best player and its captain against Germany today in Belo Horizonte.
