Neymar Jr., the star Brazilian forward, carved a unique record for himself when he netted a penalty during the international friendly match between Brazil and Tunisia. Neymar is now the third South American in football history to have scored 75 or more international goals. The only two other people to have achieved this feat are his compatriot Pele and Argentina captain Lionel Messi.

Neymar has now scored 75 goals in 121 appearances for his national side. He is expected to soon replace three-time World Cup winner Pele on the top of Brazil’s highest scorers list since the latter has 77 goals to his name.

Lionel Messi, on the other hand, is the highest South American scorer when it comes to international matches. He has till date scored 88 goals for Argentina in 163 matches.

However, when it comes to the list of the highest international goalscorer of all time, Portuguese goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo reigns supreme. The 37-year-old has scored 117 goals for Portugal in 191 matches.

The match between Brazil and Tunisia was marred with some untoward incidences like lasers allegedly being aimed at Brazilian players by a section of the spectators. The match, which was held at PSG’s home ground Parc des Princes, also witnessed a banana being hurled at Richarlison when he was celebrating a goal.
