Brazil have dropped to third-favourites for World Cup glory behind new 2/1 favourites Argentina and Germany.

The hosts were cut into 7/4 by Skybet immediately after disposing of Colombia in Friday night’s bruising quarter-final, but that win came at a cost with Neymar and Thiago Silva (suspended) set to miss the next match, says Sporting Life.

Neymar’s World Cup is over after he sustained a fractured vertebra in his lower back and Sky Bet report support for new 2/1 favourites Argentina, who play Holland in the semi-finals after they beat Belgium 1-0 and the Dutch overcame Costa Rica in a dramatic penalty shootout.

Brazil are now 13/5 with the Leeds-based bookmaker, with Germany second-favourites at 12/5.
