Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar added to his international goals tally with the Brazilian national team during its 2022 World Cup qualifying fixture against Ecuador. A late penalty score gave Neymar the 65th international goal of his career.
Overall, Neymar has scored 10 goals in 17 World Cup qualifying fixtures with Brazil. With two more scores in this competition, he will become Brazil’s all-time leader in World Cup qualifying goals, which would be a notable feat to achieve.
Romario and Zico are currently tied as Brazil’s all-time leader in World Cup qualifying goals with 11, as noted by the Brazilian-based outlet UOL.
For Neymar, he has had some impressive performances in World Cup qualifying fixtures with Brazil, which includes goals in matches against the likes of Argentina and Uruguay.
Neymar could very well set this record in Brazil’s upcoming qualifying matchup against Paraguay, where a double will secure him the top spot in this impressive goals leaderboard.
