Brazil’s Neymar to hit historic mark in friendly against Senegal and Nigeria


Brazilian forward Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior  is on course to become the seventh Brazilian to reach 100 international caps as the Selecao is set to face Senegal and Nigeria at the National Stadium, Singapore later this week.

Brazil, 27, will join an exclusive list including Cafu (142), Roberto Carlos (125), Dani Alves (116), Lucio (105), Claudio Taffarel (101) and Robinho (100) on 100 caps for Brazil.


Neymar could play his 100th game against Senegal on October 10th before surpassing it against Nigeria on October 13th.


He will hope to increase his goal tally as he currently has 60 international goals, two goals and seventeen behind Delima Ronaldo and Pele respectively.


Neymar will be facing Nigeria for the first time since earning his first cap for Brazil in a friendly match against United States on August 10, 2010.
