Brazil started by scoring in the South American Qualifiers and with a crushing 5-1, they managed to achieve a huge victory that leaves them solid leaders after the first day was over.
The great figure of Brazil against the Bolivians was Neymar, star of the national team who now plays for Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia. The star began by missing a penalty, but then he shook himself with a double that ended up being historic for him in the Brazilian national team.
After his two goals against Bolivia, Neymar set a record for goals with the Brazil National Team. The forward managed to surpass the historic Pelé and became the player with the most goals in the entire history of the team.
Neymar reached 78 goals with Brazil and left behind Pelé, who was left with 77 scores, although the CBF has recorded a total of 95 for the ‘King’, but the FIFA record is conclusive and includes the official and friendly matches between nations and not against clubs as the Brazilian Football Confederation has noted.
For now, Neymar is the top scorer, although his streak could continue to increase as the games go by and he could continue adding in the next game against Peru in Lima if he scores.
