Records that Lionel Messi could break vs. Panama


Lionel Messi could break a few records when Argentina play Panama on Thursday.

Messi could add a few records to his name when the Argentina national team play Panama. The first is reaching 800 career goals.

The Argentine World Cup winner is presently on 799 career goals and one more would bring him to 800. The second record is one with the Argentina national team.

He is presently on 98 goals with Argentina and two more would get him to 100 goals with his country. A third record is that of hat tricks.

If Messi scores a hat trick, he will reach 50 hat tricks in his career. And the last record would be that of the four goals.

He has scored five goals in a match with Argentina but has never ended a match with only four goals. Should Messi score four goals and not five, he will have scored his first poker with Argentina.
