Messi Becomes Third Player To Score Over 100 International Goals

Lionel Messi, one of the world’s most successful footballers of all time, has become the third male player to surpass 100 international goals.

The 35-year-old grabbed a hat-trick in Argentina’s 7-0 win over Curacao in a friendly on Tuesday.

Messi’s three-goal haul takes his tally to 102.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar passed the 100-goal mark in his 174th appearance for his country, after netting his 99th international goal and 800th of his career in the 2-0 win against Panama last Thursday.

Messi, however, remains third on the all-time men’s list of leading international scorers behind Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who now has 120 and Iran’s Ali Daei, who scored 109 before retiring in 2007.
