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.
Pele: "Messi only shoots with one leg, only has one skill. And doesn't head the ball well."— Barça Universal (@BarcaUniversal) December 19, 2020
Ironic how Messi equals Pele's record by scoring a header…
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.
