Barcelona Star Lionel Messi Makes History, Records 700th Career Goal | NESN After Hours
Lionel Messi etched his name in the record books Tuesday night.
The soccer superstar recorded his 700th career goal of his career as Barcelona took on Atletico Madrid. Messi recorded his 699th club and country goal on June 16 and after two weeks, was able to bury the big one on a penalty kick Monday.
The 33-year-old joins rival Cristiano Ronaldo as the only two active players to reach the milestone, and Messi was able to do it 111 games fewer than the Portuguese superstar.
