Neymar was in the middle of helping Brazil dominate Bolivia in 2018 World Cup Qualifying Thursday night when things took a turn. In the 63rd minute, Bolivia’s Yasmani Duk landed a vicious elbow to the side of the FC Barcelona star’s head. The result was the right side of Neymar’s face turning into a bloody mess.
Here’s a look at what happened and the aftermath:
