Iconic footballer, Lionel Messi has now reached his 147th appearance for Argentina, equaling Javier Mascherano’s all-time record appearance for La Albiceleste.
Messi reached the feat on Monday night June 21, after being included in the starting lineup in his country’s 1-0 Copa América win over Paraguay, helping them through to the quarterfinals.
Papu Gómez’s 10th-minute goal was enough to earn a narrow win and maintain Argentina’s unbeaten start to the tournament.
Messi, who turns 34 on Thursday, is already his country’s record goalscorer with 73 goals at the international level.
