Neymar has made history by coming second behind Pele in Brazil’s all-time leading scorer list after scoring a hat-trick in 2022 World Cup qualifying win over Peru.

The PSG forward scored his 64th international goal late into the game to make it 4-2 for Brazil.

Peru led the game twice from Lima’s perfect shots but Neymar scored two penalties to take his tally above Ronaldo, with Pele on 77.

Everton’s Richarlison also scored, nudging a header from Liverpool’s Roberto Firminio header over the line.

Neymar has played 104 international game for Brazil while Pele made the number one all-time scorers list from 92 games.

Brazil and Argentina lead the group after winning both of their opening matches while Paraguay, who beat Venezuela 1-0 on Tuesday, are third.

The top four countries from the 10-team group will qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar while the fifth place will participate in inter-confederation play-offs.
