A hat-trick from Neymar helped Brazil to a 4-2 victory over Peru in a 2022 World Cup qualifier in Lima on Tuesday, while Colombian Radamel Falcao came off the bench to score a last-minute equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Chile in Santiago

Peru’s Andre Carrillo scored his third goal in two games to put the home side ahead after six minutes with a clean volley from outside the box, but Neymar equalized on the spot in 28 minutes after being fouled

Peru took the lead again after 59 minutes when a 25-yard shot from Renato Tapias hit Rodrigo Caio before rolling into the net, only for Richarlison to equalize five minutes later

Neymar put Brazil in the lead with another penalty seven minutes to go and, after Peru’s Carlos Zambrano sent off, scored his 64th international goal when he stabbed at home in injury time to carry the score at 4-2

With this hat-trick, the Paris St Germain striker moved to second on his country’s all-time goals list Seul Pelé, with 77 goals, scored more for Brazil than Neymar

In Mérida, Paraguay took the points with a 1-0 victory over Venezuela, Gaston Gimenez scoring for the visitor with five minutes to go

Brazil and Argentina lead the group after winning their first two matches, while Paraguay, who drew with Peru in their opener, are third with four points

Jefferson Lerma put Colombia in the lead after seven minutes when he took advantage of poor marking to fly to the far post and go home with a deep cross from the right

A penalty from Arturo Vidal after 38 minutes and an opportunistic goal from Alexis Sanchez three minutes before half-time put Chile in charge

But Falcao was there in a packed penalty area to send a Johan Mojica shot into the net and give Colombia a deserved share of the points
