Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina has equalled late football legend Diego Maradona’s World Cup record of eight goals for the Albiceleste on Saturday night.
Messi accomplished the feat after scoring in Argentina’s 2-0 World Cup victory over Mexico.
Argentina defeated Mexico thanks to two goals from Messi and Enzo Fernandez.
Messi scored his second goal of the tournament against Mexico at Lusail Stadium, with the 35-year-old ending up being named Man of the Match.
Messi’s goal against Mexico brought his total for the World Cup to eight, equaling Maradona’s record for Argentina in the process.
The PSG forward will now look to surpass Maradona’s goals when Argentina takes on Poland in their next World Cup match on Wednesday.
