The Argentine captain, Lionel Messi scored an astonishing Hatrick against Bolivia in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifier last night, to handed his side 3 goals to nil victory. He was a goal short of Pele's record prior to the match. Just 14 minutes into the game, he scored a fantastic goal from outside 18-yards box to levelled with the Brazilian legend on 77 goals, he went on to scored 2 more to become the highest international goalscorer in South America male football history.
The Paris Saint-Germain Attacker feels so glad, and goes emotional after the final whistle, due to the fact that he reaches such a milestone in Argentina soil and in front of the Home crowd. As the team captain and bone of contention, who recently led his side to their first major trophy in 28 years, finally get to celebrate their Copa America trophy within Buenos Aires in Argentina. It was indeed a great moment for Leo and his teammate, as well as the management of Argentina Football Association (AFA).
He ended the match with magnificent display, as he added more feathers to his wing. Scored his 751st senior career goal, 7th Hatricks for Argentina, and 55th career Hatricks overall.
He might have break this Pele longstanding record earlier before the encounter with Bolivia, if their match with Brazil would have taken place. It was a great moment for the 6 times Ballon d'or winner to surpassed the 3 times FIFA World Cup winner international goal record.
