Mexico Vs. Brazil, 2012 Olympics: Neymar Goes Down After Challenge From Corona

Ouch. Brazil have been on the front foot for most of the half, but all of that attacking apparently comes with a price. It's not a Mexico counterattacking goal, but it is pretty painful -- Neymar's just gotten himself absolutely clobbered by Jesus Corona while going up for a cross. Oscar swung the ball in from the left side, it hung up invitingly for the Santos star, and Corona punched clear, then followed through with an elbow to Neymar's head. That really didn't look fun.

Neymar has to go off for some treatment, but he's back on the pitch within minutes, sporting a delightful tissue paper tusk in his left nostril. He immediately goes on an intricate, weaving run through the penalty box which is eventually curtailed when he tries to take on two defenders too many, so it looks like he's fine. Then again, a smash over the bar from eight yards indicates that make he isn't. Anyway, it's still 1-0 Mexico, and Brazil probably need to get a goal while El Tri are on the back foot...
