"GOAT" Lionel Messi Becomes The First Player In Football History To Do This

Argentina captain Lionel Messi was in action for Argentina last night in their FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Bolivia where he scored a hat trick to help Argentina get a 3-0 win.

The new Paris Saint Germain superstar opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a brilliant finesse shot past Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe. He added his second goal in the 63rd minute with his right foot to make it 2-0 before sealing his hat trick in the 87th minute to make it 3-0.

After the record, Messi surpassed Pele as South America's all-time goalscorer. He now has a total of 79 goals ahead of Pele who has 77 goals and Neymar who had 69 goals.

However, that was not the only record Messi broke last night, Lionel Messi also became the first-ever player in football history to score at least 1 hat trick in 14 different calendar years.

Congratulations to Messi for his new records.
