Rio de Janeiro - Fifa's disciplinary committee could take action against Colombia's Juan Zuniga for the World Cup quarter-final challenge that left Brazilian superstar Neymar with a fractured vertebrae, a spokeswoman said on Saturday.

“The Fifa Disciplinary Committee is analysing all the elements provided, the videos and the match reports and will decide whether or not to take action,” Fifa spokeswoman Delia Fischer told a briefing.

Neymar was injured in Brazil's 2-1 win over Colombia on Friday when Zuniga kneed him in the back. The Barcelona forward will miss the rest of the World Cup. - Sapa-AFP
