Lionel Messi breaks Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick record
Records are made to be broken. Recently, Argentina's icon Lionel Messi has surpassed Portugal's linchpin Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick record with an incredible effort during Argentina's match against Ecuador in the ongoing Copa America. This was the Argentine's 58th goal from a free-kick spot, and he has now surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo's record. Also, Messi's 76th goal for Argentina puts him one goal short of Brazil's Pele's record for the most goals scored by a South American in men's internationals. Lionel Messi has already created many records in soccer. He has scored 644 goals playing on behalf of Barcelona.
