Manchester City flop Robinho is drawing comparisons with Pele thanks to his scoring exploits with Brazil at the World Cup.

The goal against Chile was Robinho's seventh in Brazil's last six matches against Chile, and his eighth overall against their South American rivals, allowing him to join Pele as the Brazilian with most goals against the Chileans.
