Pele, widely considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, scored 643 goals for Brazilian club Santos between 1956 and 1974. And every since players have been trying to reach to his score making his competitive debut in 2004 under Frank Rijkaard, he has matched or beaten countless all-time records in football – even some that, like Pele’s, were once thought to be unbeatable.

Lionel Messi reached to the goal and added one more prodigious achievement to his career, equalling Pele’s record for most numbers of goals.

The Argentine sensation Lionel Messi is considered to be one of the most greatest players of all time. Mesi has won a record of six Ballon dÓr awards. And he also bags a record of six European Golden Shoes. Spent his entire life with Barcelona, the player has won a club-record 33 trophies, including 10 LaLiga titles, 4 UEFA Champions League and 6 Copas Del Rey. Recently the player surfaced on the news due to the whole “Messi-Antoine Griezmann’s former agent Barca-Drama,” when Messi frustratingly admitted that he is tired to being blamed for problems in the club.

The player has notched his 643rd goal for Barcelona in their 2-2 draw against Valencia on Saturday. This achievement has levelled him with the legendary Brazilian to score the leaping amount of goals in his playing career for Santos.
