It’s another miraculous milestone for Lionel Messi…
The 28-year-old Argentine soccer superstar scored Barcelona‘s only goal in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Valencia; it was his 500th career goal.
The milestone goal arrived after Messi had gone 515 minutes without netting one for his club, ending his five-game drought.
Messi slotted home Jordi Alba‘s cross to make it 2-1 Valencia for his 450th Barca goal in 525 appearances.
The five-time World Player of the Year has also scored 50 times in 108 caps for Argentina.
It’s the latest landmark in a remarkable career and comes less than 11 years after the then 17-year-old’s first senior goal against Albacete in May 2005.
“The figure is from another galaxy,” said Barca boss Luis Enrique when asked about the achievement.
