Watch: Lionel Messi record breaking 5 Goals for Argentina against Estonia

Fresh after leading Argentina to the Finalissima 2022 triumph against Italy, Lionel Messi weaved his magic on the field again as La Albiceleste thrashed Estonia 5-0 on Sunday, with the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner spectacularly scoring all the five goals of the game.

The 34-year-old Argentina captain opened the scoring just eight minutes into the contest when he converted from the penalty spot. Messi then doubled his and Argentina’s tally on the night on the cusp of half-time with a left-footed strike from the right side of the penalty box.

Two minutes into the second period, Messi completed his hat-trick with another sweet left-footed effort.

The former Barcelona captain added two more to his tally in the 70th and the 75th minute to heap misery on minnows Estonia.

In doing so, Messi equalled his career-best performance for club and country in a single match, levelling the five-goal display he had put up in the Champions League against Bayer Leverkusen in 2012 while at Barcelona

The PSG superstar is clearly in fine form and has his tails up after leading Argentina to the Copa America 2021 and the Finalissima 2022 success.

If he continues in the same vein of form, the Albiceleste will be serious contenders for the FIFA World Cup 2022 which will be held in Qatar later this year
