Twitter Celebrates as Lionel Messi Breaks Brazil Legend Pele's South American Goal Scoring Record
Pele disrespected Messi so much when he was younger. He was almost never impressed even when Messi won successive balon dors. Clearly bitter!— Lionel, Not Messy 🇦🇷 (@SneakyMessi) September 10, 2021
That's what makes this record so damn sweet for me. Now, he's gonna be seeing Messi's name where his name used to be in the record books pic.twitter.com/UuOH4sqHDO
I don’t think people realise how mad it is that Messi broke Pele’s record for the most South American goals scored, whilst also having the most assists in international history and playing as a playmaker.— Z 🔋 (@BarcaMVP) September 10, 2021
Doing all so in a significantly weaker side too. pic.twitter.com/oalxD64dXg
Respects To Pele, Ronaldo, Maradona, Ronaldinho & Lukaku bt this is Messi in just 2021 at 34! & that's real footbal— Kinaata Associate 🔴💙 (@KingNIMWELL) September 9, 2021
He's not just dribbling. This little man right here is doing everything which brings out the entertainment in football!
He's simply the GOATpic.twitter.com/R7gmj5CW3u
