Brazil were playing their first game under interim coach Fernando Diniz and looked to have got off to a perfect start when they won a penalty after 15 minutes. Up stepped Neymar, who need just one goal to break the record, but his weak spot kick was saved by Guillermo Viscarra.
However it didn’t take long for Brazil to find the breakthrough and Rodrygo struck midway through the first half to give his side a well-deserved lead at the break.

Brazil started fast in the second half with two quick-fire strikes from Raphinha and Rodrygo to settle the game in their favour. But the loudest cheer of the night came on the hour-mark when Neymar swept home a loose ball to score his 78th international goal.
Bolivia scored a late consolation through Victor Abrego but it was Neymar who had the final word, scoring his second of the evening with a close range finish in stoppage time.
It was a promising start to life under Diniz and historic night for Brazilian football.

Neymar surpasses Pele’s record
There are very few names, maybe none, in the history of football that can match the global resonance of Pele. The Brazilian legend lifted the World Cup three times and has been his nation’s record goal scorer for half a century.

On Friday evening Neymar broke Pele’s incredible record of 78 international goals, writing his own name into the history books. The goals came via a second half brace in a 5-1 win over Bolivia.
