The 3 Records Set By Messi That May Never Be Broken

The 3 Records Set By Messi That May Never Be Broken

The man's accomplishments speak for themselves, and he continues to set new records with every game he plays, since the little magician is widely regarded as the top player in the entire globe.

1. Achieving the majority of goals in a calendar year

In 2012, Messi eclipsed Gerd Muller's record for the most goals scored by a player in a calendar year (85), which he had held since 1998.

With 91 goals for club and country, the tiny magician established a record that is undoubtedly the best single-year performance by any player in the history of international football.

Argentine striker Diego Maradona scored 79 goals for his club and 12 for his country in that season, becoming the only player in history to win four consecutive Ballon d'Or titles. Insane

However, he was beaten by Real Madrid for the league title and was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by Chelsea because his only trophy at the time was the Copa Del Rey championship.

2. The longest scoring streak in the history of the game

Being on the scoresheet in a league for an extended period of time is not an easy undertaking, as you must make sublime simple in order to accomplish the accomplishment.

Lionel Messi, on the other hand, scored 60 goals in the 2012-13 season. During that time span, he scored 33 goals in 21 consecutive LaLiga appearances, a career high.

The young man from Rosario, Argentina, has emerged as a model for footballers all over the world, thanks to his exceptional ball handling talents as well as his goal-scoring and dribbling abilities.

3. The greatest number of Ballon d'Or victories

With a total of seven Ballon d'Or victories under his belt, Leo Messi now owns the record for the most Ballon d'Or victories by a footballer.

He now has two more goals than his close rival and arch-nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo, who has five to his credit at this point.
