RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- FIFA will not take action against the Colombia player who injured Neymar and ended the Brazil stars World Cup. Jason Castro Jersey . FIFA said its disciplinary panel "cannot consider this matter" under the rules because the match referee saw the challenge by Camilo Zuniga and judged it at the time. "In this specific case, no retrospective action can be taken," FIFA said in a statement on Monday, because the incident "did not escape the match officials attention." In a separate decision, the panel also refused to consider a Confederation of Brazilian Football appeal against captain Thiago Silvas yellow card in the 2-1 win quarterfinals over Colombia on Friday in Fortaleza. Thiago Silvas second caution of the tournament triggered a one-match ban which he will serve in the semifinals. Brazil will therefore be without its best player and its captain against Germany on Tuesday in Belo Horizonte. Neymar will be sidelined for about 45 days after sustaining a fractured third vertebra. The panel studied video of Zunigas 86th-minute challenge, where he kneed Neymar in the back when jumping into him at speed. Zuniga apologized on Saturday. Spanish referee Carlos Velasco Carballo did not show Zuniga a yellow card, and FIFAs disciplinary panel considered the incident judged on the spot. The seriousness of an injury could not be weighed in a disciplinary decision, nor was mistaken identity a factor in the case, FIFA added. "First and foremost, the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee (Claudio Sulser) wishes to state that he deeply regrets the incident and the serious consequences on Neymars health," the statement said. The Luis Suarez biting case earlier in the World Cup raised expectations that Sulsers panel would also punish Zuniga. However, Suarezs bite of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellinis shoulder was missed by match officials. That allowed Sulser to use video evidence to ban the Uruguay forward for nine international matches and four months. The Mexican referee in that case, Marco Rodriguez, will handle the Brazil-Germany semifinal in his first match duty since Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 on June 24. Thiago Silva was booked against Colombia for impeding goalkeeper David Ospina who tried to kick the ball downfield. The FIFA disciplinary code states that cautions can be cancelled only in "exceptional circumstances." The panel "cannot consider the matter given the fact that there is no legal basis entitling it to grant such request," FIFA said. Preston Tucker Astros Jersey .Y.

HAMPTON, Ga. -- Tony Stewart took his seat on the podium -- unshaven, his eyes glassy -- and unfolded a sheet of paper. His voice quivered as he read, pausing to maintain his composure as he described the death of a driver he hit as "one of the toughest tragedies Ive ever had to deal with." This was a far cry from the brash driver known around the track as "Smoke." Ninety minutes later, he climbed into his No. 14 car and sped toward the high-banked oval at Atlanta Motor Speedway, drawing a cheer from the crowd gathered around his garage. He quickly got up to speed, turning laps of nearly 190 mph, a racer back in his element. Ready or not, Stewart is back on the track. Describing himself as heartbroken but eager to heal, Stewart rejoined the race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship surrounded by those he considers a second family -- his team, his crew, his rivals. He missed the last three races, going into seclusion after the sprint car he was driving struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr., who had stepped on the track to confront him during a race. Hell get back to work as an investigation continues in upstate New York. Authorities said Friday that the probe into the cause of the crash will last at least another two weeks. No decision has been made about whether Stewart will face charges. "This is something that will definitely affect my life forever," Stewart said. "This is a sadness and a pain I hope no one has to experience in their life. That being said, I know that the pain and mourning that Kevin Wards family and friends are experiencing is something that I cant possibly imagine." He mentioned Wards parents and three sisters by name, saying he wanted them "to know that every day Im thinking about them and praying for them." Stewart took no questions about Wards death because of the ongoing investigation, and said he wasnt sure if he had the emotional strength to answer them anyway. But his timid, halting delivery presented a much different side to a racer whose infamous temper has sparked clashes with the media and fellow drivers. It was business as usual when Stewart switched to his racing suit. He signed autographs. He talked with his crew about the cars setup. He chatted up Kurt Busch. Behind the wheel, Stewart looked as though he had never been away. He advanced to the final round of qualifying before settling for the 12th starting spot in Sunday nights race with a speed of 187.907 mph. One of his teammates at Stewart-Haas Racing, Kevin Harvick, claimed the pole at 190.398. Stewart went out ahead of Harvick and advised him to take a lower line on the track. "He was definitely a big help," Harvick said. Afterward the two chatted briefly, a conversation Harvick described as "all racing." If Stewart should wiin in Atlanta, or next weeks race at Richmond, he would qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Josh Reddick Jersey. While NASCAR requires its drivers to compete in every event to make the playoff, Stewart was granted a waiver that is normally applied to a driver who misses a race for medical reasons. Mike Helton, president of the governing body, said NASCAR made the decision after consulting with third-party experts who "were relevant under these circumstances." He would not elaborate. "We want to join everybody in racing in welcoming Tony back," Helton said. "Hes a great asset to NASCAR. Hes a great champion, a great participant in our sport." There was no word from Wards family on Stewarts return. A woman who answered Friday at the home of Kevin Ward Sr. said the family would not be commenting. During an Aug. 9 sprint-car event in upstate New York, Stewart and Wards cars bumped while racing into a turn, sending Wards car spinning. Ward climbed from his wrecked machine and wandered onto a darkened track in a black racing suit, wanting to make his displeasure known to the three-time NASCAR champion. One car appeared to swerve to avoid Ward, but he was struck by the back right tire of Stewarts car. The 43-year-old Stewart pulled out of the race at nearby Watkins Glen the morning after Ward was killed, and then skipped events at Michigan and Bristol. "Ive taken the last couple of weeks off out of respect for Kevin and his family and also to cope with the accident in my own way," Stewart said. "Its given me the time to think about life and how easy it is to take it for granted. I miss my team, my teammates and I miss being back in the race car, and I think being back in the car this week with my racing family will help me get through this difficult time." Asked if it was fair to make Stewart eligible for the Chase, rival driver Denny Hamlin wavered a bit. "Its a very vague thing," he said. "Its tough to say whats considered medical and not." Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice-president Brett Frood said the driver sent flowers and a card to Wards family around the time of the funeral. He hopes to meet with them at some point. "Hes been very respectful of them and their time to grieve," Frood said. "Its important for Tony to spend time with the family. I do think that will happen at the appropriate time." Stewart said he knows there are plenty of questions surrounding Wards death. Many of those have focused on whether he was trying to frighten a young driver who had the nerve to challenge him over a racing crash. But he emphasized that the best way for him to heal was to put on his helmet. "Being in that car," Harvick said, "cures a lot of problems for a short time."
