Neymar is a goal away from equaling Pelé's all-time scoring record for Brazil

Jogo Bonito is back. Again.

Neymar is back from the injury that kept him off the pitches of Qatar for Brazil's remaining couple of group stage matches.

After much speculation over his presence, Brazil's No. 10 started and scored a penalty in a marvelous 4-1 victory over South Korea in the Round of 16.

Cold as ice.

Neymar scores in first game back from injury

This goal was Neymar’s first in Qatar and his eighth across all three of the World Cups he’s participated in.

The penalty put him as one of the only three Brazilians — next to Pelé and Ronaldo — that've been able to score in three different World Cups.

However, even after hitting this milestone, the 30-year-old is still looking to break a record he’s had his eyes since before even landing in Qatar.

Neymar is one goal away from tying Pelé’s goal-scoring record

Neymar’s goal against South Korea was his 76th for the national team, leaving him only a goal away from tying the great Pelé’s all-time scoring record for Brazil.

The chosen one.

Although he fell short on his return to the pitch, the Brazilian will have another opportunity in the verde e amarela’s quarterfinal match against Croatia on Friday. It’s only a matter of time.

Brazil doesn't forget Pelé

Brazil and Neymar took the end of the match to send a message of support to their greatest legend, who has been dealing with health issues for the past week.

"Vida longa ao rei."

Now, let’s hope we see Neymar score another before the end of the tournament, allowing the current No. 10 to equal Brazil’s greatest-ever with a World Cup goal celebration that pays tribute to the king of soccer.
