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


Neymar Jr needs to score one more goal to surpass Pele as Brazil’s all-time leading scorer.

As things stand, the forward, who signed for Al-Hilal this summer, sits level with his legendary compatriot on 77 goals.

It would appear to be only a matter of time before Neymar finds goal number 78 and overtakes the three-time World Cup winner Pele.

That historic strike could be recorded in a 2026 World Cup qualifier against Bolivia, while Brazil also face 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 after it is done,” Neymar said ahead of the fixtures.
