Neymar emulates Ronaldo and Romario after bringing up 100 goals for PSG
Neymar has emulated Cristiano Ronaldo and Romario to cement his place in football history after bringing up 100 goals for Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG wrapped up their 2021-22 campaign in style as they thrashed Metz 5-0 at Parc des Princes on Saturday, with Kylian Mbappe scoring a hat-trick to celebrate his surprise new contract extension.
The Frenchman stole most of the headlines after snubbing a transfer to Real Madrid, but Neymar also managed to get on the scoresheet, joining a very exclusive club in the process.

Neymar’s effort against Metz was only his 13th of the season for the Ligue 1 champions, but it also marked his 100th goal in 144 appearances across all competitions since his arrival from Barcelona in 2017.
The 30-year-old is now only the third player in history to have scored 100 goals for three different clubs, having also achieved the feat with Barca and Santos.
Ronaldo managed the milestone at Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, while Brazil legend Romario reached 100 goals in his club career for PSV, Vasco Da Gama and Flamengo.
