Neymar has been nothing less than sensational as Brazil took a big step towards qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The PSG forward made 2 assists against Bolivia and then followed it up with a hat-trick in the game against Peru last night.
Facing the challenge of being the second top scorer in Brazil’s history, Neymar did so with his three goals on the night.
The former Barcelona man now has 64 goals as he leaves Ronaldo Nazário (62) behind.
Now he’s going after Pelé (77).
Neymar might not reach Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi levels, but he’s solidified that spot after those two greats and this bit of play against Peru summed up how good he’s been during the international break.
