Messi Became the First Player Ever to Achieve This Unreal World Cup Feat After the Win over Mexico

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi once again etched his name in the FIFA World Cup record books.

Messi was a decisive player in the Argentina national team’s 2-0 World Cup group stage win over Mexico on Saturday. The Argentine forward opened up the scoring in the second half with a thunderous outside-the-box goal, and he was credited with the assist on Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez’s curling goal in the late stages of the contest.

The assist for Messi against Mexico was quite a historic one, as he became the first player ever to record at least one assist in five different World Cups.

Overall, the Argentine forward has now recorded six total assists in his World Cup career. He now needs a mere three assists at the World Cup to break Diego Maradona’s record for the most assists for La Albiceleste at the sport’s biggest tournament.

Messi will next be in action on Wednesday when the Argentina national team meets Poland for their World Cup group stage finale.
