In South America’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Neymar secured his position as Brazil’s all-time leading scorer by netting two goals in the second half, propelling Brazil to a resounding 5-1 victory over Bolivia. Entering the match, 31 years old Neymar found himself tied with Pele at 77 goals record. His chance to surpass the legendary record came in the 17th minute when Brazil received a penalty. However, his disappointment was palpable as Bolivia’s goalkeeper, Guillermo Viscarra, made a relatively simple save, preserving the goalless scoreline.

Seven minutes later, Brazil seized the lead as Rodrygo displayed rapid reflexes, swiftly slotting the ball into the net. Right after halftime, Brazil extended their lead as Raphinha, cutting in from the left, unleashed a low shot that grazed a defender, altering its trajectory slightly before finding the bottom corner of the net.

Neymar’s scored his 78th goal in his 125th game for his country. The 31-year-old ex-Barcelona forward recently transferred from Paris Saint-Germain to the Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal.
