Messi is the fifth player in history to score in four World Cups


Lionel Messi became the fifth player in football history to score in four World Cups.

The Argentine, who has already admitted that he is saying goodbye to the World Cups in Qatar, opened the scoring against Saudi Arabia, by 1-0. Messi scored in 2006, 2014, 2018 and now also in 2022. He only missed out in South Africa in 2010.

Messi joins a group with Pelé, Miroslav Klose, Cristiano Ronaldo and Uwe Seeler.

In total, this is Messi’s seventh World Cup goal. He scored one in 2006, four in 2014 and one in 2018.

In 166 international appearances, Messi scored 92 goals. He won just one Copa America with the national team and is still looking to collect the World Cup trophy.
