SAO PAULO (AP) - Neymar took part in the ice bucket challenge and called on the player who fractured his back at the World Cup to keep the campaign going.

The Brazilian star posted a video in which he douses himself with ice water. He then named Colombia’s Juan Camillo Zuniga, former teammate Robinho and One Direction band member Niall Horan as those he wanted to participate in the campaign to fight ALS.

Zuniga ended Neymar’s World Cup with a knee in the back during a quarterfinal.

Zuniga quickly accepted Neymar’s challenge. He posted a video of Napoli teammates pouring ice water on him Monday, then challenged Colombia teammates James Rodriguez, Pablo Armero and Juan Cuadrado.

The ALS Foundation campaign aims to raise money and awareness in fighting ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
