Neymar’s injury that he sustained in the game with Colombia was painful to watch. The knee in the back from Juan Zúñiga broke a bone in Neymar’s vertebrae. And when Neymar was stretchered off the pitch, you could tell he was in agony as he cried tears of pain. Shortly afterwards, he was whisked away directly to the hospital for a scan.

In Brazil, losing Neymar for the remainder of the tournament is a national tragedy. But the Brazilian and Barcelona forward decided to put his thoughts and emotions into words. In doing so, he shed a tear again, and undoubtedly will cause others to shed a tear when they watch this.

Here’s the transcript of what Neymar said. And watch the accompanying video below.

“Brazilian people – players, coaches and fans -, this is a very tough moment. It’s hard to express my thoughts in words. I want to tell you that I’ll be back to the field as soon as possible. I would like to thank you for your support and affection expressed through the messages that have been sent to me.

“My dream has not ended yet, it was suspended due to a move, but it is still alive. I am sure my partners will make sure I can achieve my dream, which is to be a champion. Another dream of mine was to play on a World Cup final, but I won’t be able to do it now. Although I’m sure that my partners will win and be champions along with me, and we, brazilian people, will be celebrating this achievement. Thank you all!”
