Lionel Messi surpasses the feat of scoring 400 goals for Barcelona and Argentina

Only 27, the four-time world player of the year achieved the landmark after scoring a brace in a remarkable 6-0 home win over Granada on Saturday.

“It’s like Messi was touched by a magic wand,” were the words of Barcelona coach Luis Enrique.

Messi has scored a staggering 359 goals for Barcelona since making his debut in 2004, plus 42 for his national side Argentina, in 506 career appearances.

Messi with his exceptional habit of breaking record has helped the Spanish side win 21 trophies, including 6 La Ligas and 3 Champions Leagues, in the past decade.

For his individual trophy cabinet, he is the winner of 4 consecutive Ballon d’Ors, the trophy given to the world’s best player, between 2009 and 2012.

On his official facebook page, the Argentinian said, “I never imagined I could achieve anything like this in my career. I’ll continue working hard to reach more targets.”

Barcelona, who finished runners-up last season are unbeaten this season after six matches and are on top of their league table.
