Lionel Messi Breaks Pele’s South American Goals Record by damilola4162(m): 8:32am On Sep 10, 2021
Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has broken the South American men’s record of goals held by Brazil legend, Pele, Newspremises reports.

Messi netted a hat-trick as they beat Bolivia 3-0 in a World Cup qualifying fixture in Buenos Aires.

It took his total tally of international goals to 79, two more than Pele’s.

Messi is however behind Brazilian duo of Marta (109) and Cristiane (96) for the overall record for most goals scored by a South American player at the international level.

Third on the men’s list is the 34-year-old’s friend and Paris Saint-Germain teammate Neymar, who has 69 international goals for Brazil.

“I was very nervous, I just wanted to enjoy the night. I waited a long time for this.

“We won the game that was the most important thing and now we can celebrate,” an emotional Messi said after the match.

I'm a CR7 fan but I must confess, I enjoy watching Messi. He plays in a world of his own.

But still on still, CR7 any day, twice on a f*ckin Friday!!!

Messi and Ronaldo has to be probably forced to retire otherwise the next generation of footballer will have almost impossible record to break

Just like having a jamb record set to 395, breaking it will be one hell of a job
