Neymar nears Pele's record as Brazil win 2022 World Cup qualifiers

Neymar nears Pele’s record as Brazil and Argentina win 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Brazil and Argentina kept up their 100% record in South American qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with triumphs over Peru and Bolivia individually.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar scored a cap stunt in Brazil’s 4-2 win at the Estadio Nacional in Lima on Tuesday night.

The 28-year-old, who has scored multiple times in 103 appearances for his nation, pushed two forward of Ronaldo and lies 13 objectives behind record goalscorer Pele.

Richarlison got Brazil’s other objective while Andre Carrillo and Renato Tapia were on the scoresheet for the hosts.

Somewhere else, Joaquin Correa scored the decider a little ways from time as Argentina scraped past Bolivia 2-1 at the  Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz.

Moreno Martins gave the hosts the lead halfway through the main half before Lauro Martinez leveled on the stroke of half-time.

Lionel Messi and Martinez at that point consolidated to tee up Correa to whip home the champ.


Giants lead the way

After two of the 18 qualifiers, Brazil sit head of the Conmebol table on objective distinction. Argentina are second and Colombia are third with four focuses following their 2-2 attract Chile on Tuesday night.

Ecuador got their first purposes of the mission with a 4-2 cavort past Uruguay in Quito.

They started to lead the pack on 15 minutes as Moises Caicedo flicked home a header from an Angel Mena cross.

Michael Estrada multiplied the favorable position on the stroke of half-time and he smashed home his second from 20 meters soon after the interruption.

Ecuador’s last objective was a show-stopper as Alan Franco’s opposite pass muddled Uruguay’s protection and Gonzalo Plata turned his foot over the ball to submit both sliding safeguard Ronald Araujo and goalkeeper Martin Campana before stroking the ball into the furthest corner.

Luis Suarez scored his record-broadening 61st and 62nd objectives for Uruguay with a couple of late punishments that were close to a comfort.
