Neymar Jr on fire with Brazil!
For Brazil's second match of Copa America 2021 against Peru, Marquinhos and Neymar Jr's La Seleção shone once again.
Brazil have made a real impression at home at this Copa America.
After an unforgettable opener at the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha with a 3-0 victory over Venezuela (and goals from Marquinhos and Neymar Jr), Tite's side were back in action against Peru and came out as 4-0 winners.
And although Marquinhos was rested for the encounter, Neymar Jr, who was involved in two goals against Venezuela, once again for the back of the net in the 68th minute.
The Paris n°10 has now been directly involved in a goal in his last four matches for Brazil. He now boasts 68 goals in the Brazil shirt and is second in the all-time goalscorers, just 9 goals behind Pelé.
