Neymar Equals Romario Record, Climbs In Brazil All-Time Scoring Ranks

Brazil superstar Neymar has equalled a remarkable record set by Selecao icon Romario, and has climbed in his country’s all-time goalscoring ranks having already surpassed the likes of Ronaldinho and Rivaldo.

The 26-year-old has returned from injury with a bang, finding the net twice in as many games before Brazil travel to Russia for the World Cup.

Doubt was cast over the player's chances of going to Russia when he picked up an injury playing for Paris Saint-Germain in March, but after months of rehabilitation and recovery, Neymar appears to be getting back to his best.

The former FC Barcelona man was on target again for Brazil in their 3-0 friendly win over Austria on Sunday, with his goal grabbing all the headlines, and rightfully so.

Neymar made an opponent fall on his backside with a clever piece of trickery before calmly finishing, a goal that equalled Romario's tally for Brazil.

The forward has now hit the back of the net on 55 occasions for his country, meaning he is now tied with the legendary Romario as the Selecao's third-highest scorer of all time.
