Neymar set to reach 100th cap for Brazil

1 min read

Neymar is on course to become the 7th Brazilian to reach 100 international caps as his team prepare for their friendly against Senegal.

Brazil’s superstar received a special national team shirt with the number 100 on it to mark the milestone to be achieved in the Thursday exhibition match in Singapore. The 27-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker has helped the national team to FIFA Confederations Cup glory in 2013 and Olympic gold in 2016.

With Neymar in the team, Brazil have posted 70 victories, 19 draws and 10 defeats. However, he has also experienced many disappointments, particularly at the World Cup. In his 99 appearances for the Selecao so far, Neymar has scored 61 goals, 42 of which have been in friendlies. Overall, only two Brazilians have been on target more often for their national team: Pele with 77 goals and Ronaldo with 62.
