His goal took him on to 55 from 85 tops and he was pleased to move level with Romario as Brazil's third most astounding scorer, deserting him 22 record-holder Pele. 

Addressing correspondents, Neymar stated: "For me it is a significant privilege, awesome bliss to achieve Romario, to be among the best scorers of the Brazilian group.
