In recent days, Neymar has been basking in the limelight as he clinched the title of Brazil’s all-time leading goal scorer.
The forward, now with Al-Hilal, etched his name in history by surpassing the legendary Pele after netting twice in Brazil’s resounding 5-1 victory over Bolivia.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star received a special tribute from PUMA, the renowned sports brand, which collaborated with him to craft a collection of 78 exclusive football boots.
These unique boots are set to be bestowed upon the most influential figures in Neymar’s illustrious career.
At the outset of the Bolivia showdown, the 31-year-old shared the goal-scoring record with Pele, both having notched up 77 goals for Brazil.
Breaking Records and Creating a Legacy
However, Neymar concluded the match with 79 goals to his name, having made 125 appearances for the national team. It’s worth noting that Pele represented Brazil from 1957 to 1971.
Reflecting on this remarkable achievement, Neymar humbly stated, “I never imagined reaching this record. I want to say that I am not a better player than Pele. I always aimed to create my own legacy, to inscribe my name in the annals of Brazilian football and the national team. And today, I accomplished just that,” Neymar expressed.
Neymar’s journey began in 2010 when he netted his first goal for Brazil, and he hadn’t featured for the national team since their exit from the 2022 World Cup following a defeat to Croatia in the quarter-finals.
With Neymar now standing as Brazil’s undisputed all-time leading goal scorer, PUMA promptly unveiled a striking collection of 78 limited-edition FUTURE boots to commemorate this historic milestone.
These boots are not just footwear; they are a testament to Neymar’s journey.
They boast an exquisite blend of white gold and matte gold, with each pair adorned with ten distinctive icons representing ten pivotal moments in Neymar’s remarkable life and career.
These exceptional boots will find their way to an exclusive circle of individuals, personally handpicked by Neymar himself, including family, friends, coaches, current and former teammates, and revered Brazilian football legends.
Each recipient will receive a boot bearing a number that corresponds to their role in Neymar’s journey, making these boots a symbol of his enduring legacy.
