Samba boy Neymar Jr. made history with a magical goal. He broke Pele’s record for scoring in the most important moments of his team in the World Cup. Neymar touched the milestone of 77 goals scored by football legend Pele for the national team Brazil.

Brazil scored one after another throughout the match, but Croatia goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic was a mountain in front of the Seleção’s goal. The goalkeeper saved 8 goals in the first 90 minutes for Dinamo Zagreb.

However, going into extra time, the end was not saved. At the end of the 105th minute, Neymar took the ball in with a single effort and put the team ahead. The Brazilian star touched Pele in this goal. The PSG star reached this milestone by playing 124 matches in the national team jersey. However, it took 92 matches for Pele to achieve this feat.
