Lionel Messi Sets Another Soccer History After Scoring 400th Goal

Lionel Messi makes La Liga history, scoring his 400 goal for the team Sunday during a triumphant game between FC Barcelona and Sociedad Deportiva Eibar at Camp Nou.

“Four hundred is ridiculous. It’s easy to say it, but if you stack [the goals] one after the other … the numbers are stratospheric, incredible. Messi is an extraordinary player from another galaxy,” Barcelona manager Ernesto Valderde said of the 31-year old forward.

Messi entered the game strong, netting the monumental goal within the first hour before easing to a more defensive position and ending the match 3 to 0.

With an average of 0.92 goals per game, Messi was first named La Liga’s top scorers in 2014 after surpassing the 1950’s record goal set by Bilbao striker Telmo Zarra’s.

“It is not just that he is a goalscorer, it’s everything he creates, the goals he gives us, what he generates around him,” said Valderde.

La Liga teammate and striker Luis Suarez, who scored the first goal Sunday, said, “Obviously, we have to be very proud of Messi because every week he demonstrates how good he is and continues to make history with the club.”

Messi is the second soccer player to ever score 400 goals for Europe’s top five club teams. Although preceded by Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo who reached a record of 409 league goals in 507 games, Messi again stands apart after completing his 400 goals in just 435 games.
