Argentina Captain, Lionel Messi, has established one more standard in the continuous 2022 FIFA World Cup keeping his side’s 2-1 triumph over Australia in the round of 16 on Saturday night.
Keep in mind that Messi recently surpassed the World Cup appearance record set by the late Argentine legend Diego Maradona for La Albiceleste.
Messi has now surpassed Germany legends Lothar Matthäus and Miroslav Klose for the most games played in World Cup history.
On Saturday, the forward for Paris Saint-Germain faced Australia in his 23rd match at Al Rayyan’s Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.
The former captain of Barcelona is on track to rise to the top of the all-time list.
Messi shared a goal with Italy legend Paolo Maldini, fell one goal behind Klose, who he will catch in Argentina’s quarterfinal match against the Netherlands on Friday, and two behind Matthaus.
