5 June 2022 0 By Total Football News

 

Argentina and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi was in absolutely inspired form on Sunday evening, in racking up a staggering five goals for his country.

The Albiceleste were back in action a short time ago.

Fresh off securing Finalissima glory courtesy of a 3-0 drubbing of Italy, Lionel Scaloni’s troops made the trip to the Estadio El Sadar, for a friendly meeting with Estonia.

And, safe to say, Argentina were in no mood to take their foot off the pedal…

An utterly dominant display ultimately culminated in the South American champions emerging on the right side of a head-turning 5-0 scoreline.

The aforementioned Messi, meanwhile, bagged all five of his country’s goals, courtesy of a whole array of world-class finishes:

Not only that, but his latest haul has too seen Messi etch his name ever further into the history books of the beautiful game.

Having now found the net on a whopping 86 occasions across his time with Argentina, the 7-time Ballon d’Or winner has surpassed Hungarian icon Ferenc Puskas as the 4th-highest international goalscorer of all time.

In addition, Messi has too become just the 3rd player to ever net five goals in a single outing for the Albiceleste:
