Johannesburg: Brazil football great Pele has revealed that it would be ‘fantastic’ if compatriot Neymar breaks his all-time goalscoring record for the nation.
Barcelona forward Neymar has scored 46 international goals so far and has a bright chance of eclipsing Pele’s record of 77.
Pele, the three-time World Cup winner, said that coincidentally the 23-year-old is from Santos and that it would be fantastic if he could achieve the feat, Sport24 reported.
Earlier this month, Wayne Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as England’s record goal-scorer. (ANI)
