Lionel Messi – the greatest ever?

Lionel Messi is widely regarded as the greatest footballer in the world. If you go a step further, he’s even regarded as the best player ever by many.  He recently scored his 234th goal for Barcelona – making him the clubs record top scorer and he’s only 24. He scored 3 goals in a recent 5-3  win against Granada. That means that those 234 goals have been scored in just  314 game. Before breaking the club record, Messi put 5 past Bayer Leverkusen in a 7-1 victory, a feat that has never been matched before.

However, Messi has never shown this level of class for his national side - Argentina. He never took his chance to shine in Maradona’s side as he has in  Guardiola’s  Barcelona. That being said, his goal scoring record for Argentina would be a good by most strikers standards – but not Messi’s.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, is regarded as the second best player in the world by many despite having scored a record 98 in 90 games for Madrid in the league – a record that is even better than Messi’s.
