The big names in international football will be looking to break more records during the next break in the domestic campaign.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar will be looking to break or extend existing records.
Brazilian superstar Neymar has just joined the Saudi Pro League to join Al Hilal from Paris Saint-Germain in a deal that could be as high as £86m.
Injuries have been a huge problem for the striker in recent years but that hasn’t stopped his goalscoring exploits for Brazil.
The 31-year-old has scored 77 times in 124 games for his country and equals Pele’s record.
Brazil will play matches against Bolivia and Peru in September where they will have the opportunity to break the icon’s record.
However, he is unlikely to be seen in the same light as three-time World Cup winner Pele, having failed to replicate such success.
Loyal to South American teams, Lionel Messi is also closing in on the second-best international goalscorer of all time.
It’s Ali Daei, who has scored 108 times for Iran, while Messi has 103 for the reigning World Cup winner.
They face Ecuador and Bolivia in September and if he replicates the kind of form he showed with Inter Miami, then anything is possible.
Then Ronaldo will obviously want to get in on the action as well and extend many of the records he already has.
The 38-year-old, who kicked off the influx of stars into Saudi Arabia earlier this year, is already the international top scorer with 123 goals in 200 games.
Portugal face Slovakia and Luxembourg in their Euro 2024 qualifiers in September and Ronaldo’s eyes will light up against one of those teams.
He scored 11 goals against Luxembourg, including two against them earlier this year.
These 200 games are also a record and continue his record career.
Before breaking the 200 mark, he said: “For me, this is an extremely important milestone. It means a lot. Being the 200th game, I will be the first in history to do so, I am very proud because it’s something I never thought I could achieve, but I have to keep going, I still have a lot to do.
“(200) is a round and beautiful number that nobody has. I say it sincerely, I do not follow the records, they follow me. I am happy, it is also my motivation to continue playing at the highest level national. “
