VIDEO: Neymar issues heartfelt address to Brazilian fans

Neymar may be out of the World Cup, but that’s not stopping him from being 100 percent behind his team and his country. He issued one of the most emotional addresses we’ve seen from a player just days after suffering a fractured vertebrae against South American rival Colombia.

Here is the complete transcript of what Neymar had to say:

“Brazilian people – players, coaches and fans -, this is a very tough moment. It’s hard to express my thoughts in words. I want to tell you that I’ll be back to the field as soon as possible. I would like to thank you for your support and affection expressed through the messages that have been sent to me.

“My dream has not ended yet, it was suspended due to a move, but it is still alive. I am sure my partners will make sure I can achieve my dream, which is to be a champion. Another dream of mine was to play on a World Cup final, but I won’t be able to do it now. Although I’m sure that my partners will win and be champions along with me, and we, brazilian people, will be celebrating this achievement. Thank you all!”
