The World Cup 2014 tournament is into the semifinals and Brazil is set to take on Germany on Tuesday and they will be without Neymar in that game after he suffered a stress fracture in his back against Colombia and according to ESPN and other rumors, reports say Neymar could be trying some "heavy medical treatments" to try and come back if the host nation makes it to the final.

Brazil has long been considered a favorite in the tournament along with Argentina, Germany and the Netherlands and amazingly enough, those are the last four teams left. Neymar is one of the most dynamic players in the world and he suffered a freak back injury after a rough tackle against Colombia and he was basically ruled out of the rest of the tournament. reported that Neymar was given a good prognosis and that he could be back in action after 40 days of rest and recovery.

Neymar coming back is a very slim possibility and it could be threatening to his overall health even if he does find a way to recover. Neymar has been the leading scorer for Brazil in this tournament and the team is putting their undefeated home record on the line against Germany after going over 30 years without losing on their home soil.

Lionel Messi is leading Argentina into the semifinals for the first time in over two decades and now the Germans will be the favorites among the European teams, while the Netherlands is into the semis for the second straight World Cup. No European team has ever won the Cup when it is in South America and that means the Netherlands and Germany will be fighting a bit of history to try and win. Argentina and Brazil are the last two left from the host continent and now are playing for South America in the semifinals.
