Budweiser sent a beer to each goalkeeper who has conceded a Lionel Messi aim after the Argentinian celebrity netted his historic 644th strike for Barcelona this week, breaking Pele’s long-standing document for many targets for a single membership.
Messi, who helped Barcelona win 3-Zero at Valladolid, had equaled Pelé’s all-time scoring tally on Saturday. His 643rd profession aim for Barcelona since his 2004 debut matched Pelé’s tally for Santos from 1957-74.
What makes 644 much more particular?
The reality Leo Messi scored against the very best keepers on the earth to break the document.

The beer firm sent a customized bottle to each of the keeper for each aim the 33-year previous scored against them with each bottle numbered with the corresponding aim on the entrance of the label. An announcement from Budweiser stated: ‘644 targets, 644 personalised beers, 160 goalkeepers.
644 targets = 644 moments of Messi magic
And sure, we’ve created a customized bottle for each single aim to ship to the keepers to toast their half in historical past.

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas set to get 17 bottles whereas Gianluigi Buffon was pictured with bottles No. 514 and 515 when Messi scored twice against him within the Champions League again in 2017.
Buffon reacted on Twitter, saying, “Thanks for the beers. I’ll take it as a compliment. We have great battles over the years! Congratulations on breaking the 644 record @leomessi. It really is an unbelievable achievement. Cheers!”

Congratulations in your nice achievement of 644 targets, Leo. I by no means like conceding however the problem of stopping you brings the very best out of goalkeepers too. Thank you @budfootball for the particular present. #BeAKing #Messi pic.twitter.com/3Nmn9dVycu
