FILE - In this April 14, 2012 file photo, soccer player Neymar, left, and former soccer player Pele, right,  shares a laugh during the centennial anniversary celebration of the team in Santos, Brazil. Brazil’s most promising player in decades is living up to expectations, enchanting with his skills and putting up numbers that set him on a path to greatness. He is already Brazil’s fifth-greatest goal scorer, and is well on pace to surpass Pele’s record as the nation’s most prolific scorer. If Neymar keeps scoring like this, he may break Pele’s record before he turns 28 in 2020. Pele was only two months older than Neymar when he netted his 40th goal. Only Pele and Romario have a better goal average than Neymar with the national team. (AP Photo/Nelson Antoine, File)
