Another day, another milestone, another day at the office for Barcelona and Argentina star, Lionel Messi.
The 33-year-old Argentine dispatched his 700th career goal on 30th June 2020 with a lovely panenka from the spot-kick beating Jan Oblak.
He enters club 700 goals with the likes of Ferenc Puskas, Cristiano Ronaldo, Josef Bican, Brazil legends, Pele and Romario who have all bagged more goals than the Barca star.
Messi’s 700th comes just over 14 months after he netted his 600th for club and country.
How has he scored his 700 goals?
The majority of his goals have come from his left foot – 582 of them – with 92 coming courtesy of his right.
Not the biggest of players, nor one who has operated in a side reliant on crosses into the box, only 24 of his 700 goals have come from a header.
Clinical from a dead ball, Messi has also scored 52 direct free-kicks and 90 penalties.
Most come from efforts inside the box (580), with 120 from outside the penalty area.
