Brazil pass Germany as all-time top scorers at the World Cup

Brazil became the all-time leading goal scorers at the World Cup in Monday's 2-0 win over Mexico.

Neymar's breakthrough goal early in the second half moved Brazil onto 227 goals, one more than Germany, who had held the record with 226.

Roberto Firmino then added a late goal to put Brazil at 228 World Cup goals -- two clear of the Germans, who will not be able to add to their tally for another four years after failing to make it out of the group stage for the first time in their history.

Brazil and Germany's goal tallies are far and away from the rest of the field, as Argentina are third with 137.

Italy (128) and France (113) are the only other teams with more than a century of World Cup goals, while Spain are stuck on 99 after losing to Russia on Sunday.
