A sore knee couldn’t stop Lionel Messi from breaking Gerd Mueller’s 4o-year-old record of 85 goals in a year yesterday. It couldn’t even slow him down. Messi came in and made the record his own by scoring his 85th and 86th goals in the first 25 minutes of Barca’s win over Real Betis in the Spanish league match. With 3 more games left on the schedule for this year, Messi will be chasing 90 goals. He is about to become the first player to win 4 Ballon d’Or awards and firmly put himself on the top of the list of the greatest soccer player in the world. EVER!
