Lionel Messi has finally equalled Pele’s record for the most goals with one club as he hit a free header vs Valencia to score his 643rd goal.

Everyone expected Messi to hit this record sooner, especially after he did not move to Manchester City in the summer, but it has been a long wait for everyone, including the Argentine himself. Barcelona or none of the players are particularly enjoying a great season as they sit outside the top 4 after 12 games.

Messi, especially, has been en route to a rather dull campaign, having scored no more than nine goals so far in all competitions, including the one today. It has finally happened, however, and the dreaded wait is over – goal no. 643 is here, the wait is over, and it does not look like the record will stand for much longer.
