Neymar one goal away from overtaking Pele as Brazil’s all-time top scorer

Currently, the forward, who joined Al-Hilal this summer, is tied with his illustrious countryman with 77 goals.
It would appear to be only a matter of time before Neymar finds goal number 78 and overtakes three-time World Cup winner Pele.
That historic strike could be recorded in a 2026 World Cup qualifier against Bolivia, while Brazil also faces Peru next Tuesday.
“It is hard to know what that record means, but it does mean a lot.
“No one ever thought about overcoming that. It is something I will respond to after it is done,” Neymar said ahead of the fixtures.
