Moreover, he has scored 99 goals for his country, including two in the World Cup final.

At the Monumental de Nunez Stadium in Buenos Aires, the Argentina captain added a free kick in the 89th minute to Thiago Almada’s opening goal from 11 minutes earlier.

Messi will have the chance to score his 100th goal for Argentina when they take on Curacao on Tuesday.
