Neymar scored a hat trick to become the second highest scorer in Brazilian history when the Copa America champions won 4-2 in a World Cup qualifier in ten-man Peru.

The goals put Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar to 64 international goals, two more than Ronaldo but still below Pele’s record of 77.

Peru took the lead twice from Andre Carrillo and a heavily deflected hit from Renato Tapia, but two controversial penalties from Neymar, a third injury point and a close-range goal from Richarlison made Selecao successful start into Qatar 2022 qualifiers.

Carrillo opened the scoring after six minutes with a volley from 20 yards after getting used to Marquinhos’ weak lead.

Peruvian goalkeeper Pedro Gallese then challenged Roberto Firmino from close range after he was sure he would come home from Richarlison’s padded header.

Brazil dominated but Peru’s pacy strikers looked dangerous to counterattack and visiting goalkeeper Weverton had to be vigilant to block a shot from Christofer Gonzales.

But Neymar sent Gallese off in the wrong direction after Yoshimar Yotun was punished for pulling his shirt into the box.

Out of nowhere, Tapia’s speculative long-range shot took Rodrigo Caio and Weverton hard in the 59th minute.

The lead lasted just minutes before Richarlison touched a Firmino header from a corner over the line to restore parity.

The winner came seven minutes from time when Carlos Zambrano was harshly sentenced for fouling Neymar.

Things were to get worse for Zambrano when he was sent off minutes later for a stray elbow that caught Richarlison and Neymar scored the final goal after Gallese spilled a shot from Everton Ribeiro.

Joaquin Correa scored the winning goal with eleven minutes left when Argentina beat Bolivia 2-1 after two games to hold their 100 percent record.

Lionel Scalonis Argentina scored a second narrow win in a row after beating Ecuador 1-0 on Thursday.

Marcelo Moreno Martins gave hosts Bolivia a well-deserved lead but Argentina accidentally equalized through Lautaro Martinez.

Lionel Messi, who had an otherwise quiet game, and Martinez then teamed up to fend off Correa and beat the winner home.

Ecuador dominated Uruguay in a 4-2 win in Quito.

They took the lead in the 15th minute when Moises Caicedo headed home from an Angel Mena cross.

Both teams had ruled out a goal after a VAR review before Michael Estrada doubled the lead after a half and shot home from the box after a mistake by Uruguayan center-back Diego Godin.

Uruguay was again rejected by VAR before Ecuador went straight to the other end, where Estrada cracked Valencia’s rear wheel from 20 meters.

Ecuador’s final goal was a work of art as Alan Franco’s back pass confused Uruguay’s defense and Gonzalo Plata rolled his foot over the ball to sign both sliding defender Ronald Araujo and goalkeeper Martin Campana before stroking the ball in the far corner.

Luis Suarez scored his record-breaking 61st and 62nd goals for Uruguay with two late penalties that were just consolation.
