Lionel Messi became the all-time top scorer for a single football club after scoring his 644th goal for Barcelona during their La Liga match against Real Valladolid, surpassing Pelé’s record goal haul for the Brazilian side Santos.
Lionel Messi 2020
Lionel Messi broke the record of most goals in a single game as he scored twice against arch rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League. But he didn’t stop there, as he added another two goals to his record. He became the only player in the history of the game to score in every match he played. And why shouldn’t he? He has been referred to as the magician that makes things happen, a player who can make even the most unlikely of plays come together.
It was a strange sensation watching Lionel Messi plays his part in history. It is rare to see a performer of such caliber with such natural ability. When you see him, you almost think you are seeing a little person on a playground. This is because it is so easy to fall in love with the way he moves and how light he is on the feet. He uses these natural gifts to his advantage, to score El Capitaine with his feet, kick the ball with a stunning twist of his hips and execute other difficult passes that cannot be described.
Who is the greatest footballer of all time
In one game against Real Madrid, he dribbled down the right side, cut inside an overlapping defender and hit a low, expertly placed cross that went just past goalkeeper Pepe. Two minutes later, he did it again. This time, he crossed the ball from the right side to the left side, cut inside defenders and delivered an unstoppable strike into the far corner.
But don’t for a second think that these are the best of him. Far, from it. As he grows older, his game becomes more refined and he makes complete use of both his physique and his abilities. Against giants like Madrid, he seems to have a magical touch.
