Legendary Brazilian Pele is the country's all-time record scorer with 77 goals to his name -- a milestone Neymar will hope to break before he retires from international duty.

Ronaldo, who is widely regarded as one of the best players in Brazil's history, posted a fitting message about Neymar's achievement on his Instagram.

The two-time World Cup winner posted to his 17.2m followers: "All my respect for you [Neymar]!

"He plays a lot, gives assistance, plays, dribbles and thrashes. The sky is the limit. Fly, kid!

"What a beautiful story you are writing. A complete and increasingly mature player. Crack! Handling the pressure off the pitch is sometimes more challenging than the ball itself.

"Now tell me: where did we come from, where did we arrive...who is going to tell us what is impossible? Keep trusting your instincts because the talent is yours and nobody can take it from you.

"You have a lot of records to overcome and marks to leave. Proud to see a Brazilian at the top!"

Neymar paid tribute to Ronaldo on social media after he posted a photo of him replicating the two-time Ballon d'Or winner's iconic celebration.

Ronaldo, 44, won two World Cups, two Copa Americas and a Confederations Cup with Brazil during his illustrious playing career.

Neymar has only won the Confederations Cup with Brazil in 2013, but he missed out on lifting the Copa America title last summer due to injury.
