Neymar nominates Juan Zuniga (the Colombia defender who injured the Brazil star at the World Cup) to do the ice bucket challenge
Barcelona man also nominates Robinho and One Direction's Niall Horan
Monday 18 August 2014
Neymar has found a way to exact revenge on the defender who made the Brazil star miss the World Cup semi-final.
Juan Zuniga, Colombian whose hefty challenge broke Brazilian hearts and left Neymar with a fractured vertebra, has been nominated by Neymar to do the ice bucket challenge.
Neymar's absence, as well as some shocking defending, meant Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the semi-final.
On his Instagram page Neymar called out Zuniga to take part in the craze that is sweeping social media.
Neymar, nominated by Real Madrid defender Marcelo, also challenged Robinho and One Direction's Niall Horan to dump a bucket of freezing cold water over their head.
The striker has now recovered from the injury and should start for Barcelona in the opening game of their La Liga campaign, when they host Elche next Sunday.
