Lionel Messi climbs to fourth place on all-time scoring chart in men’s international football

Lionel Messi scored all five Argentine goals as he continued his fine form beating Estonia in a friendly in Pamplona, ​​Spain.

Argentina beats Italy 3-0 in the final – A game between the champions of Europe and South America on Wednesday.

Messi provided two assists in that game and was in old form once again.

He started the scoring with a penalty and then scored two more goals in either half to complete Root.

This is the first time the 34-year-old has scored five runs in a game for his country. In fact, he has achieved this feat only once before in his career. Barcelona’s 7-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen In the Champions League in 2012.

His third, against Estonia, two minutes after half-time took him to the level of 84 goals with Ferenc Puskas as the fourth highest scorer in the history of men’s international football.

Fourteen minutes later, his fourth game meant he had overtaken the great Hungarian and is now only behind Malaysia’s Mokhtar Dahari (89), Iran’s Ali Dei (109) and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo (117).

He would still have been close to Ronaldo, but the Portuguese Scored twice in his country’s Nations League win against Switzerland on Sunday.

Messi’s goals in Pamplona showed his immense skill.

He put Lionel Scoloni’s team ahead with a cool penalty after eight minutes, then doubled the lead in the roof of the net from a tight angle with a powerful side-footed effort.

His third performance was a hunter finish, showing his trademark accuracy to direct Nahuel Molina’s right-wing cross from 12 yards into the bottom corner.

His fourth was much due to his alertness. As the other players stopped and hoped for a free-kick prize that never came, Messi picked up a loose ball, drove it into the box, produced a dummy that left the Estonia keeper and a defender on the ground and hit the ball. Rolled in an empty net.

He concluded his remarkable performance when he was again the fastest to react to a loose ball and slipped into a low finish next to the penalty spot with 14 minutes to go.

While Estonia did not provide the most rigorous test, this result – combined with a win over Italy, their unbeaten World Cup qualifying campaign and last year’s Copa America victory – suggests that Messi may have a greater chance of winning the World Cup. Maybe, a trophy that has taken him out of his illustrious career.
