Friendly match – First in his career and for 80 years: Messi scores a quintuple in Argentina-Estonia (5-0)

In one game, he scored almost as many goals as in his entire season in L1 with PSG (note: 6 in 26 games). Already decisive with his two assists against Italy last Wednesday (0-3), Lionel Messi blazed with Argentina against Estonia (5-0) in a friendly this Sunday. And it’s a mild understatement because La Pulga planted the five goals of the meeting. A first for him with the Albiceleste.

The Finalissima for Argentina of a great Messi

After transforming a penalty obtained by German Pezzella from the 7th minute (1-0), Lionel Messi panicked the counters from the 44th by planting four other goals in 31 minutes (44th, 46th, 70th, 75th). A recital against a weak Estonian team whose defense could only see the talent of the seven-time Ballon d’Or, who enjoyed himself as rarely in the selection.

It overtakes Puskas

With this first quintuplet of his career with his country, Messi, who had already planted five goals in a match with FC Barcelona (note: in 2012 in C1 against Bayern Leverkusen 7-1), once again goes back in time. . The PSG star achieves a performance that no Argentinian had achieved since January 1942, 80 years ago! And becomes the third player of his selection to register a quintuplet, with Juan Andrés Marvezy (against Ecuador in 1941) and Manuel Moreno (against Ecuador in 1942).

The icing on the cake to punctuate this historic evening: with now 86 goals in the selection, Messi overtakes the Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskás (84 goals) to become the fourth top scorer on the international scene in history.
