Pele, Neymar and Ronaldo: Brazil's all-time top goalscorers – in pictures

The Paris Saint-Germain forward is going strong in both the most goals and appearances lists for his country

He might be lacking the World Cup winner's medals of some of his illustrious countrymen, but there can be no doubt Neymar has made his mark for Brazil.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward moved to second place on the national team's all-time top goalscorer list after grabbing a hat-trick against Peru on Tuesday – taking his total to 64 in international football.

It meant the 28-year-old jumped above double World Cup winner Ronaldo, leaving only Pele – a world champion three times – to beat on 77 goals from 92 games.

Neymar has yet to lift the Word Cup, or even the Copa America for that matter, for Brazil but has had no problem scoring since his debut goal in a friendly against the USA in 2010.

He has also made 103 appearances for Brazil – putting him fifth on the most caps list. Another double World Cup winner, Cafu, sits way out in front with an impressive 142 caps.
