Video: Lionel Messi Breaks All-Time ‘La Liga’ Scoring Record

posted by Oscar November 22, 2014

It finally happened… Lionel Messi has broken the record for most goals ever in the Spanish league after scoring a hat-trick today against Sevilla. The previous record-holder was Telmo Zarra, who held the record for nearly 60 years after scoring 251 goals throughout his career.

Messi, just 27 years old and with several good years ahead of him, came into this match needing one goal to tie the  historic mark and reached it with a phenomenal free kick. The record-breaking 252nd goal for Messi (seen above) came from a give-and-go play with Neymar that Lio had to slide for to get the ball into the back of the net. The Barça man added one more tonight to extend his tally, and however many goals he makes from now on in league play will be the mark to chase.

Over the weekend, Lionel Messi broke the record for most goals for FC Barcelona and to help commemorate this occasion, adidas have announced the exclusive and limited edition “Messi 371.” A series of only 371 pairs of adidas adizero f50 Messi boots will be released to celebrate the Argentinian’s record-breaking 371 club goals in all competitions.

For the first time for adidas kicks, each pair will feature a different design on the left and right foot, inspired by Messi´s goal scoring stats, separating the percentage of goals he’s scored with his left foot, right foot and head. The boots also carry the unmistakable Messi boot customisation with the name of his son Thiago and date of birth printed on the side of the product. Each pair will be uniquely numbered #001 – #371.

The limited edition “Messi 371” boots will feature a premium packaging for each of the 371 pairs, including a 20 page commemorative booklet detailing the magnitude of this milestone, selecting five of Messi´s most famous and important goals, with a boot inspired graphical design.

The adidas adizero f50 Messi 371 are available now for purchase in selected adidas retail outlets, associated stockists and via www.adidas.com/messi-collection.

Messi is arguably one of the best players of all time, who’s already won the Ballon d’Or four times along with breaking many records in the process further cements his place in history by scoring 371 goals at FCB at the age of just 26 in just 10 seasons at the top level.
