Tissues at the ready – there was a tear-jerking moment before the international friendly between Brazil and Colombia, as Neymar graciously accepted an apology from Juan Zuniga.

It was Zuniga’s challenge which ruled Neymar out of the World Cup semi-final against Germany with a broken back, which Brazil went on to lose 7-1.

But in last night’s re-match in Miami, in which Neymar captained his Brazil side, Zuniga approached the Barcelona man to offer a hand of friendship – and his counterpart graciously accepted.

It was a touching moment, but Neymar went on to get his revenge as his free-kick sealed a 1-0 victory for Brazil.
