Ronaldo: Zuniga Intended To Hurt Neymar

Brazil legend, Ronaldo, believes Colombia's Juan Zuniga intended to hurt Neymar in a challenge that ruled the Brazil number 10 out of the tournament.
 
The challenge took place in the closing stages of the second half, and it was confirmed the Brazil striker broke a vertebra in his spine and is expected to be out for six weeks, and "El Fenômeno" says Zuniga knew what he was doing.
 
"We could see on TV there was intention by the Colombia player to actually cause some harm," said Ronaldo
 
"I didn't like that very high knee so that leads me to believe it was a foul with intention to actually cause harm.
 
"I thought it was a highly violent and unlawful move by the Colombia player. We are fearful and sad for the loss of our player.
 
"I don't think it was a normal football play. I do believe it was aggressive.
 
"I don't know whether he had planned this beforehand but I do believe it was very aggressive, very violent."
