After two goals against Bolivia, Neymar set the goalscoring record for the Brazilian national team. The forward managed to surpass the historic Pele and became the top scorer in the entire history of the team.

Neymar scored 78 goals with Brazil and left Pele with 77, although the CBF recorded a total of 95 for the ‘King’, but the FIFA record is firm and includes both official and friendly matches between the nations. Against clubs as specified by the Brazilian Football Confederation.

For now, Neymar is the top scorer, although his streak could continue to increase as the games go on, and if he scores he could add to the next game against Peru in Lima.
