Another Brazil game, another pair of goals for Neymar. 

After hitting the 40-goal plateau with four strikes against Japan in his last international match, Neymar, in his 59th cap, scored his 41st and 42nd goals for the Selecao as part of a 4-0 rout of Turkey in a friendly in Istanbul on Wednesday. 

For his first, Neymar split a pair of defenders while racing onto a gorgeous long pass from Fernandinho for a 1-v-1 finish he made look simple in the 20th minute.

In the 60th, he combined with Willian, running onto a one-touch through ball, carrying into the left side of the box and finishing to the far post from close range with his right foot to complete the scoring. Willian was returning the favor for Neymar setting him up for Brazil's third goal, which came just before halftime.

Neymar is now six goals behind Zico for fourth all-time in Brazil's history as he creeps closer to Pele's national record of 77. The Barcelona star and Brazil captain is still just 22.
