Lionel Messi scored five times on Sunday evening when Argentina took on Estonia in a friendly.
The Paris Saint Germain continued with his hot streak that saw him create two of Argentina’s three goals as the South Americans triumphed over European Champions, Italy.
However, on Sunday night, he wasn’t the provider, he was the scorer, putting five past the European minnows. And the five goals took him to 86 international goals in his 162nd match.
The former Barcelona star opened the score with an eighth-minute penalty in Spain and had completed his hat-trick by the 47th minute.
He added another two strikes in the 71st and 76th minute to reach five goals in a single game for just the second time in his career, matching his effort in Barcelona ’s 7-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in March 2012.
This means Lionel Messi has now become the first player in history to score 1100 Goals & assists in his career. 769 Goals, 331 Assists in 974 appearances.
