Lionel Messi has won the countless winners medals along with personal accolades & awards and tonight he added yet another to his astounding CV by breaking Gerd Müller’s record of 85 goals in a calendar year.
In tonight’s game against Real Betis, Lionel Messi scored two goals. Now that is nothing new, as he actually does score when he wants, but the first equalled the great Gerd Müller’s record of 85 goals in a calendar year and the second broke that record.
With three games still to play until the end of the year, and with Messi’s tendency to score more than once when he scores, he could well add six more to that record taking it to an unbelievable 92.
Well enough talk. Why not watch this video and see all 86 goals yourself.
