Messi was under a lot of pressure because the game against Mexico was a must-win match for the Argentines. The PSG forward player gave football supporters a lot of things to talk about after the game.

He has now scored as many World Cup goals as Diego Maradona (8), with only Gabriel Batistuta (10) netting more for Argentina at the tournament overall.

He also holds the record as the youngest (18y 357d vs Serbia in 2006) and the oldest (35y 155d vs Mexico today) player to both score in a single World Cup game since the start of the 1966 tournament.
