“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
