With this goal, he also reached the Uruguayan Luis Suárez as the historical scorer of the South American Qualifiers. Both lead the classification with 29 goals.
The man from Rosario who plays for Inter Miami needed 61 games to reach this mark. He could surpass Pistolero Charrúa next Tuesday when the Argentine National Team faces Bolivia in La Paz for the second date of the South American Qualifiers.
It is necessary to highlight that Suárez was not summoned by Marcelo Bielsa for the Uruguayan National Team, so he will not be able to continue stretching his personal account on this FIFA Date.
This Thursday, Messi played 88 minutes. With the mission accomplished, coach Lionel Scaloni decided to give him a rest at the end and arranged for Exequiel Palacios to take his place.
