Lionel Messi has a BIG chance to achieve a great milestone in the match against Ecuador ahead of Copa America 2024

When Lionel Messi and the Argentina squad play Ecuador prior to the 2024 Copa America, Messi has the chance to reach a significant scoring milestone.

Lionel Messi is driven to smash all existing records, regardless of the shirt he wears or the competition he participates in. La Pulga is only five goals behind Inter Miami’s all-time best scorer Gonzalo Higuaín after scoring 12 goals in 2024.

Inter Miami’s number 10 has personally contributed to 25 goals this season, including 12 goals and 13 assists (MLS counts indirect assists) in 12 matches. His goal on Sunday came in a 3-3 draw against St. Louis City. By completing this, he broke the record for the fastest player to accomplish this feat in a single season.

Messi is only 1 goal away from reaching 700 goals with his left foot in his career

Messi broke Carlos Vela’s (Mexico) record in the final game before he joined the Argentina squad to train for Copa America 2024. Vela required 16 games in 2019 to score 12 goals.

The left foot goal’s benchmark

With how many goals he has scored with his left foot, Messi is so close to setting yet another incredible record. Yes, Leo is just one goal away from becoming the first player in history to reach 700 goals using his left foot. He now has 699 goals scored in this manner.

That historic accomplishment is probably going to happen on June 9 during Argentina vs. Ecuador’s friendly before the Copa America.
