Lionel Messi, the Argentine forward and captain, has once again proven his prowess on the football pitch by breaking his personal record with a goal in just one minute and 19 seconds in an international friendly match against Australia. The match took place on Thursday, June 15 at the Workers’ Stadium in Beijing, China.
Football statistics expert Gracenote reported that this was the fastest goal of Messi’s career so far, as he had never scored before the two-minute mark in a match. The sports data group also noted that Messi scored in every other minute up until the 90th minute, except for the first minute.
While Messi’s achievement is impressive, he still has some way to go to match the record of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Luis Suarez. These three footballers have all scored in every single minute of a football match, according to Sportbignews.com.
Messi recently completed a move to MLS side Inter Miami from Paris Saint-Germain this summer. In the 2022/22 season, he scored 16 goals and provided 16 assists in 32 French Ligue 1 matches. Paris Saint-Germain won the league with 85 points from 38 games.
In conclusion, Messi’s latest achievement in breaking his personal record demonstrates his exceptional skills and talent on the football pitch. Fans of the sport can look forward to more incredible performances from him in the future.
