Brazilian dazzler, Neymar who plays for PSG in France has revealed he is not focused on chasing the goal records of other Brazilians.
Brazil superstar, Neymar Jr., has insisted he is not focused on chasing down “icons” Romario, Ronaldo and Pele, to become the top goalscorer for his country.
Neymar scored a brilliant solo goal against Croatia on Sunday, as he made his return to football after three months out.
It moved him to 54 international goals, one behind Romario. Only Ronaldo and Pele, who leads the way for Brazil with 77 strikes in FIFA-recognised matches, lie ahead once Neymar passes Romario to move into third position.
“There is no fight to be Brazil’s national team top scorer,” Neymar told reporters.
“I think it’s just numbers.
“They are my idols, those who were here before me, and when it comes to idols, I will never be better than them.
“So I respect each one of them, Romario, Zico, Ronaldo, Pele… Because they are my idols. It’s just numbers.
“I’m happy to help my team, to score goals, but I don’t want to be better than them and neither will I be.
“Each one has their own history and knows their importance in the team. I’m very happy for the goals.”
