BRA 5-1 BOL: Records Neymar has set as he passes Pele to become Brazil’s all time top goal scorer

Neymar’s performance against Boli was incredible, as the Brazilian and Al-Hilal striker netted a brace to give the Samba boys a 5-1 triumph.

The guy was supposed to go one better than Pele, but his poor shot from the penalty spot was stopped by the Bolin goalkeeper.

Surpassing Pele as Brazilian highest goal scorer is a huge record. This means he his ahead of greats like Ronaldo De Lima, Rivaldo, Pele and the likes.

With just being 31 years of age, the record is expected to be surpassed with no small margin.

The game against Boli was not just only about Neymar Jr, Rodrygo also registered a brace in the game with an assist and also Raphinha was on the score sheet.

Neymar has been an effective contributor to the Selecao. He was part of the team that won the Confederation Cup in Brazil against Spain as a 22 year old where he shined. The Brazilian has also won the Olympics wit the national team.

Although Cafu is still ahead with 142 games to his name, however with 125 games under Neymar’s belt, he can surpass that if he considers to play more for Brazil.
