Neymar joins Romário in third on Brazil's all-time scoring chart



Ronaldo Nazário and Pelé are the only remaining targets left for Neymar after he drew level with Romário by scoring his 55th goal for Brazil.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has moved level with Romário in third place on Brazil's all-time leading goal scorers list. Neymar achieved the feat on his first start since suffering a broken metatarsal in February, finding the net after 63 minutes of Brazil's final pre-World Cup friendly against Austria in Vienna.

Two goals in a week for Neymar

Some sublime trickery left home defender Aleksandar Dragovic on the seat of his shorts before Neymar coolly slotted home to put Tite's side 2-0 up. Goal number 55 came after crashing in a superb goal as a second-half substitute versus Croatia at Anfield last weekend to seal a 2-0 victory.

Ronaldo in sight

The 26-year-old needs just seven more goals to draw level with former Barcelona and Real Madrid striker Ronaldo Nazário (62). Neymar's ultimate target will be to catch a fellow Santos icon in Pelé, who remains well clear at the top of the list on 77.
