It's safe to say that little Anna Bella of Brazil speaks for the entire soccer-loving world here when she tearfully asks her mother about Neymar's injury in last night's Brazil-Colombia match. Answer her, Zúñiga: "Where is Neymar?"
According to an interview with Globo Esporte, the 1 year and nine month old Anna Bella has become one of Neymar's biggest fans after falling in love with the sport this World Cup. Here's her father:
We always watched the games together. I do not know if it's because of his appearance, but she always asks about him. She just stares at him. She is one year and nine months and does not understand much, but likes the mess. She jumps a lot, all is merry when Brazil score, even more when it's Neymar.
This is how he describes how the video came about:
Game time (against Colombia), we were finishing at the dinner table. Then we said that Neymar was in the hospital, we were talking and she turned the conversation and she asked: "Neymar is in the hospital?" And my wife starts talking to her. Yesterday she fell asleep crying, worried, speaking the name of Neymar.
Her first love, taken from her at the worst possible moment in the worst possible way. I don't know if I feel worse for Neymar or for her.
