Neymar Jr. joined his PSG teammates Lionel Messi and Pele as the only South American players with more than 75 international goals. The Brazilian became the third player in history to do that.
He reached the mark after scoring a penalty in the 29th minute of the game against Tunisia in the international friendly. Brazil dominated throughout the match and ended with five goals.
Neymar has urged his team-mates to help him break Pele’s record. He is three goals shy of becoming the highest goal scorer in the history of Brazil. The striker is likely to break Pele’s record in the World Cup.
Pele has 77 goals in only 92 games for the Selecaos. Messi increased his international goal tally today after coming off the bench to score two goals against Jamaica in the space of two minutes. The Argentine now has 90 goals in 164 appearances.
Neymar’s tally is now at 75, which he has managed in 121 games for Brazil.
How Brazil Players And Manager Can Help Neymar Achieve His Dream
Brazil manager Tite should build the team around Neymar and make him the main striker going into the World Cup. Tite should encourage Brazilian wingers to create chances for him and make sure he doesn’t struggle with the ball.
Brazil has creative wingers who can help Neymar score a lot of goals. Neymar will probably receive a Ballon d’Or nomination next year given his current performance.
For his club and his country, he has consistently performed well. He is one of the players who has scored more than ten goals this year.
