Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at

Brazil has also won the second game in the qualifying phase for the 2022 World Cup. Partly thanks to a hat-trick from Neymar, the team of national coach Tite triumphed 2-4 over Peru, a few days after the 5-0 victory over Bolivia. Neymar only has to put up with Pelé on Brazil’s all-time top scorers list. After Tuesday evening, he is on 64 goals in 103 international matches, passed Ronaldo (62) and has the number of Pelé (77) even more in sight.

Peru had a dream start after six minutes: Marquinhos, who was injured not much later, did not defend very well, after which a volley by André Carrillo ended in the corner. Roberto Firmino seemed to take care of the 1-1 in the thirteenth minute, but Pedro Gallese had a wonderful save in the house. A penalty kick brought Brazil to the same level. After a foul on Neymar, it was the attacker himself who scored from eleven meters and thus came on a level with Ronaldo: 1-1.

Neymar also thought he had made it 1-2 after half an hour of play, but the VAR showed that Richarlison was narrowly in an offside position. It was Peru that took the lead again after 59 minutes of play. A good shot from Miguel Trauco from an awkward angle had already been a warning to Weverton and not much later it was still hit: a volley from Renato Tapia from a distance was significantly changed by Rodrigo Caio and put Weverton in the wrong place. leg.

Peru, however, relinquished the game in the last half hour. Five minutes later, the 2-2 already appeared on the scoreboard when Richarlison worked a header from Firmino after a corner from Neymar over the goal line. Seven minutes, Neymar cashed in another penalty after being knocked down by Zambrano: 2-3.

Tempers were running high: Zambrano was allowed to come in after an elbow blow to Richarlison and Carlos Caceda also received a red card on the bench a few minutes earlier. In extra time, Neymar completed his hat-trick: an Everton bet hit the post, after which the star determined the final score from close by. Brazil awaits qualifying matches with Venezuela and Uruguay next month.
