Lionel Messi is compared to Rafael Nadal by Lionel Scaloni after scoring five goals for Argentina in a 5-0 friendly win over Estonia on Sunday.
Barcelona legend Lionel Messi reached 86 goals, two more than Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas, now leaving him fourth in the list of longest-serving men.
Lionel Messi’s success came on the same day as tennis legend Rafael Nadal defeated Casper Ruud in straight sets to win the French Open 14th title and extend his record for most men’s slam titles to 22.
For the Argentine manager, Saloni, there are no more peaks left to explain the impact of any earthquake on anyone in the sports world.
“I don’t know what to say again. It’s very difficult; like Rafa Nadal, what are you going to say?” Scaloni told TVP.
“It’s better for journalists to speak, to speak. You no longer have words to describe, and above all, in everything they produce.”
The result saw Argentina extend its unbeaten run to 33 games, a good situation five months after the start of the World Cup in Qatar.
Lionel Messi finished his hat-trick early in the second half before hitting two more in the final 20 minutes.
Lionel Scloni added about his talisman: “He is unique, and it ‘s great to have him on the team. It’ s fun to coach him, the whole coaching team.
“We have only words of thanks. I do not think he is the legacy of Argentina; he is the legacy of the world, the football of the world. When he does not play, we will miss him.”
