The Argentine star Lionel Messi conquers record after record, and in the near future he will have a chance to conquer another one. Messi has scored against every opponent in World Cup qualifying in South America except Brazil. Something more. The striker has scored against each team more than once, but has yet to score for the Seleção.
On the night of Tuesday against Wednesday, Messi will face exactly against Brazil and he can also conquer this achievement. Thus, he will become only the 5th player in the history of the tournament who has scored against all 9 opponents.
The first to achieve this was the Ecuadorian Agustin Delgado in 2005. He was then joined by Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani in 2016 and Alexis Sanchez in 2021.
However, none of them scored more than 1 goal against all opponents.
Messi scored twice in the net of Peru, three times in the gates of Colombia and Paraguay, four times in the net of Bolivia, Chile and Venezuela, 5 times against Uruguay, and he scored the most in Ecuador – 6 goals.
Neymar also has one more victim left. The Brazilian striker didn’t just score against Venezuela.
