Messi makes record after leading Argentina to victory over Honduras

Lionel Messi has made another record after leading Argentina to victory against Honduras.

Argentina defeated Honduras 3-0 with ease thanks to two goals from Lionel Messi, extending their unbeaten streak to 34 games. With that, Messi becomes Argentina’s all-time leading goalscorer netting 88 goals in 163 appearances.

For the first goal, the 35-year-old was in the thick of things, lobbing the ball over the defense to Papu Gomez, who then gave Lautaro Martinez a tap-in.

Argentina’s goal total was doubled by Messi thanks to a coolly executed penalty.

After a defensive blunder, the Paris St. Germain forward added a third goal with a beautiful chip over the goalkeeper.

Argentina, one of the favorites to win this year’s World Cup, will play Saudi Arabia in their opening match on November 22 in Qatar.

On Wednesday, they play Jamaica in their last matchup before the competition.
