Neymar wants to break Pele’s goal record

0 541

 

Brazilian striker Neymar is closing in on Pele’s all-time goal record for Brazil, and the Paris Saint-Germain star is determined to make history as quickly as possible.

As things stand, the 30-year-old forward has found the target on 74 occasions through 120 appearances for his country.

That return leaves him three efforts short of an iconic countryman that won the World Cup on three occasions during his glittering career and will be forever remembered as one of the very best to have ever played the game.

God willing…I hope to get past him. I’m going to talk to my teammates about it and tell them to help me score so I can finally get there. Neymar added.

Pele struck 77 goals through 92 outings for Brazil, but his standing at the top of a notable chart is now under serious threat as a superstar of the present seeks to cement his own legacy.
