Neymar, 29, is looking for his first title with the Brazilian national team in the Copa America, after he missed the last edition that won the title due to injury.
Neymar sets the record for the number of international goals held by “King” Pele with 77 goals, with only 10 goals separated from him.
Brazil leads Group B with 3 points, with a goal difference against Colombia, who also meet injured Venezuela on Thursday, while Peru plays its first match in the continental championship, as the group includes five teams.
Peru enters the match excited by its precious victory over its host Ecuador 2-1 on the ninth of this month, compensating for its loss at home 3-0 to Colombia five days earlier.
Colombia is no different from Brazil, as it monitors the second consecutive victory after the first over Ecuador 1-0, to go a long way towards the quarter-finals.
Colombia, which won two wins in its last three matches (beating Peru 3-0 and forcing Argentina to a 2-2 draw in the last two rounds of World Cup qualifiers), is hoping to exploit the shaky morale of Venezuela players after the humiliating loss to Brazil in the opening match.
Venezuela suffered catastrophic conditions in the opening match, as it missed at least eight players after the results of their positive tests for the “Covid-19” virus came one day before the match.
