Lionel Messi scored what is a record five goals in one match for the Argentina national team in their 5-0 win vs. Estonia.
It was the first time that Argentina had been flooded. The German Pezzella was badly played inside the penalty area as Argentina received a penalty.
Lionel Messi would have scored a penalty, going to the left of the goalkeeper as he scored 82 goals for Argentina. He could have had a few assistants but Joaquin Correa missed a clear chance in front of the goal which would have been offside and Marcos Acuna missed an opportunity to make Argentina 2-0.
A few minutes before the break, Rodrigo De Paul will run towards Estonia as he plays Papu Gomez. He would have passed it on to Messi as the Argentine put the ball in the top corner and made it 2-0, his second goal of the game.
The second half will bring two more goals from Lionel Messi. Playing for a big team as Molina falls into Messi’s penalty area and with number 9 as a natural understanding, he can hit his hat trick!
In three goals, it was not Lionel Messi’s eight hat tricks with the Argentine national team! He has now hit the hat-tricks against Switzerland, Brazil, Guatemala, Panama, Ecuador, Haiti, Bolivia and Estonia.
Of the three goals, Messi would have made four. He would get into a loose ball and hit the ground towards the penalty area. He beat his defender and goalkeeper to score four goals for himself and Argentina 4-0.
But Lionel Messi did not finish. Several attempts at the penalty area would have saved the goalkeeper and again, the ball would reach Messi. He will also score to make it 5-0 for the Copa America and Finalissima champions.
