In a fun, friendly match against the Australian football team, Lionel Messi scored the fastest goal of his entire international football career, making Argentina fans happy in Beijing and securing a solid 2-0 victory.
The match took place in the lively, vibrant Worker’s Stadium, and this memorable goal from the GOAT came during the first 79 seconds of the football match. Just in the second minute, Argentina was able to win the ball, but in the Australian team’s half, while Messi was set up by Enzo Fernandez.
But the world-famous footballer simply evaded the two Australian defenders before simply unleashing his genius – yep, Messi was able to beat the goalkeeper and deliver a curling shot, and that too from out of the box!
Messi’s crazy goal-scoring streak for Argentinian Football continues – he was able to find the back of the next for 7 consecutive football matches. The legendary football player shows absolutely zero signs of even slowing down – this is impressive, considering Messi is turning 36 next week.
The entire Worker’s Stadium witnessed a full house where a majority of people were sporting blue-and-white jerseys – the 68K capacity crowd wore Argentinian colors, creating an eclectic atmosphere for the friendly match.
Right before the match started, Graham Arnold, the Australian football team’s coach, said,
“I can’t see any yellow shirts anywhere. I just really hope Lionel Messi gets a little percentage of the shirt sales because I’ve never seen so many Argentine number 10 shirts in my life.!”
In the 2nd half, the Argentian team simply doubled their lead after Rodrigo De Paul went for an enticing cross right into the box, and immediately substitute player German Pezzella was able to find the space between 2 defenders to go for a free header.
