Neymar is the youngest Brazilian ever to reach 35 international goals and time is on his side as he closes in on Pele's long-standing record of 77.
The Barcelona wunderkind has already scored more times for Brazil by the age of 22 than Rivaldo or Jairzinho did in their entire careers. Luca Caioli, author of bestselling biographies of Messi and Ronaldo, looks back on Neymar's unstoppable rise with exclusive private access to his friends and family, coaches, teammates and adoring fans. Updated to include his headline-grabbing World Cup performances and the fallout from Brazil's spectacular collapse in his injury-enforced absence, Neymar is the inside story of football's newest star.
