Neymar Jr. did not get the chance to attempt his penalty in Brazil’s match against Croatia, as Marquinho’s miss in the fourth attempt sent Croatia to the quarterfinal, who will now face Argentina. According to Brazil’s coach Tite, the team would have benefitted from Neymar taking the last penalty shot as he is good at handling pressure. Meanwhile, the Brazilian legend Pele remains in hospital with an infection aggravated by Covid-19, while Neymar has joined Ronaldo(Nazario) as the only Brazilian footballers to score multiple goals across three World Cups. While Neymar has scored 77 goals in 124 matches for Brazil, Pele made 92 appearances for Brazil between 1957 and 1971. Forward in the women’s team, Marta, also holds the national record for 115 goals in 171 games.

Neymar, who has formerly played for Santos and Barcelona, made his international debut in an international friendly against USA. Now a part of Paris Saint-Germain, he entered the World Cup 2 goals behind Pele’s record. The World Cup title, however, has remained elusive to the Brazilian, who sustained an injury in the quarterfinal clash against Colombia, in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, followed by a 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-final. He was also a member of the squad that reached the quarterfinals in Russia, where they were beaten by Belgium. However, Neymar’s club career has been stellar and includes two LaLiga trophies, a Champions League title, four Ligue 1 titles and a Copa Libertadores.
