Neymar continues to churn out some serious numbers for Brazil as the PSG forward scored his 66th goal and provided his 45th assist for the South American giants during a 0-2 World Cup qualifier win against Paraguay.
The former Barcelona superstar delivered another man of the match performance as Paraguay kicked him all day long but couldn’t manage to put a stop to his brilliance.
The 29-year-old appeared to be in the mood early in the game as he found the back of Antony Silva’ net in the 4th minute after some good work from Gabriel Jesus on the right flank.
Brazil had to wait for close to 90 minutes before Neymar went on a marauding run and found Lucas Paqueta, who scored their second goal on the night in injury time.
