At 8 am on October 14th, Beijing time, the second round of the 2022 World Cup South American qualifiers
In the 26th minute of the game, Neymar was pulled from behind by the Peruvian player Yoton when he was fighting for the ball in the opponent's penalty area. The referee gave a penalty without hesitation. Then Neymar personally took the penalty kick. Before the penalty, he strayed to deceive the opponent's goalkeeper and then kicked the penalty kick to the lower left corner of the goal to help Brazil tie the score 1-1.
After scoring, Neymar made a celebration by shaking his fingers. This was Ronaldo's classic celebration after scoring. Neymar was paying tribute to this predecessor. Because after scoring this penalty, Neymar has scored 62 goals in the Brazilian national team, tying Ronaldo. After that, Neymar ran to the sidelines and embraced the Brazilian coach Tite.
In addition to three, Neymar also scored a goal in the 30th minute. At that time, Brazil made a long pass from the backcourt. Richard Lison took the ball from the right and then passed it. Neymar suddenly intervened and was able to make a clearance. The Peruvian defender shot the ball before. However, the referee then penalized Richardson for offside before taking the ball. After confirmation by the VAR referee, Neymar's goal was regrettably invalidated.
Neymar is currently ranked second in the history of the Brazilian national team's scorer list, second only to the king Pele (77 goals). Neymar made his national team debut in the August 2010 match between Brazil and the United States and scored his first goal in the national team in the 28th minute. So far, Neymar has played 103 times for the Brazilian national team, scoring 64 goals and 43 assists. For Neymar, who is currently only 28 years old, he has every opportunity to impact Pele's historical goal record for the Brazilian national team.
