NEYMAR WILL SURPASS PELE-CAFU

Neymar has been backed to surpass Pele as Brazil’s record goalscorer by Selecao legend Cafu.

The Barcelona forward already has 50 international goals to his name, with only Pele, Ronaldo and Romario ahead of him in the country’s scoring charts.

Cafu told FIFA: “All records exist only to be beaten. Of course, Neymar has got it in him.

“He’s young and has time on his side. If he continues playing as he is now, then there is every possibility he will [overtake Pele].”

Having helped Brazil to an Olympic gold medal last year, Neymar has four goals in his last five World Cup qualifying matches.
