The Paris Saint Germain (PSG) duo of Lionel Messi and Neymar are widely regarded as the best two players in South America. However, the two PSG superstars are not the leader on the South American scoring chart for the World Cup 2022 qualifiers as that honour belongs to veteran Bolivia striker Marcelo Moreno.

Bolivia striker Moreno has scored eight goals in the World Cup 2022 qualifiers in the CONMEBOL region despite failing to score in the three games played last month. Moreno still leads the South American region for the most goals scored in the World Cup 2022 qualifiers after failing to score against Ecuador, Peru and Paraguay last month.

Moreno didn't find the back of the net as Bolivia lost 3-0 to hosts Ecuador in their first World Cup 2022 qualifying encounter in October. Michael Estrada and an Enner Valencia brace was enough to give Ecuador a 3-0 victory over the Bolivians.
Bolivia bounced back from the big defeat at the hands of the Ecuadorians by beating Peru 1-0 at home in their second qualifying game in October. Ramiro Vaca was the hero for Bolivia as he scored the winning goal with seven minutes remaining. Moreno didn't score against the Peruvians and he maintained the same status in the last qualifying game for Bolivia last month, a surprising 4-0 thumping of Paraguay at home.
Bolivia were able to move ahead of both Peru and Paraguay on the South American standings with the big victory over the Bolivians. Moreno was surprisingly not on the scoresheet against Paraguay. Rodrigo Ramallo, Moises Villaroel Angulo, Victor Abrego and Roberto Fernandez all scored to give Bolivia an emphatic win over the Paraguayans.
Brazilian international Neymar has seven goals in the qualifiers and he's one goal short of the tally of eight goals from Moreno, while PSG teammate Lionel Messi has scored six goals for Argentina during the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.
