Argentina Fans Are Mocking Neymar's Injury With A Plastic Spinal Column

Some Argentine soccer fans were caught on video mocking Neymar, the Brazilian striker who will miss the remainder of the World Cup with a broken vertebrae suffered in his team’s 2-1 quarterfinal win over Colombia. They’re even holding a plastic spinal column, hoisting it in the air as they sing.

Although their chant is a cruel one, it should be noted that other Argentines, most notably Lionel Messi and Argentine manager Alejandro Sabella, both spoke out and offered the Brazilian #10 their sympathies.

Brazil plays Germany in on Tuesday, while Argentina will face the Netherlands in the other semifinal on Wednesday.
