The 2014 FIFA World Cup is now down to four teams vying for a spot in the championship game. At this point, losing doesn't end one's trip to Brazil. The losers of these two semifinal games will face-off in a consolation game prior to the championship game.

At this point though, it won't make the losers feel any better. Four years between World Cups means this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that cannot be take lightly.

Many of these players will never get this opportunity again, so they're going to give it their all to ensure they're playing in the championship game.

Injury Report and Suspensions

There aren't a lot of notable players expected to miss the semifinal round, but the ones who are will be costly for the team once favored to win the tournament.

Host nation Brazil has gotten this far in large part because of the play of their star forward, Neymar, whose four goals have driven Brazil closer towards their dream.

However, he suffered a fractured vertebra in the 2-1 victory over Colombia and will play no further part in the tournament.

Joining Neymar on the sideline will be captain Thiago Silva, whose yellow card in the quarterfinal will leave him out due to a suspension.
