Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has celebrated two very special moments that have recently occurred in his distinguished footballing career.
First off, the 27-year-old Argentine scored a hat-trick against Spanish side Sevilla and became La Liga’s all-time top scorer, breaking the record that Athletic Bilbao’s Telmo Zarra (251 goals) had held since 1955.
Secondly, Messi scored a hat-trick against APOEL Nicosia in the UEFA Champions League last night (November 25th) and, in the progress, set another career milestone by shattering the record Real Madrid legend Raúl (71 goals) had as the tournament’s all-time leading goalscorer.
EA Sports has announced on Twitter the latest Team of the Week for FIFA 15’s Ultimate Team mode, with Lionel Messi receiving a special blue card rather than the standard black card each in-form player has.
Messi’s second in-form card of the season has the player rated at 95, with it boasting 95 pace, 97 dribbling, 89 passing and 93 shooting.
Manchester United’s David de Gea (rated 85) also receives his second in-form card of the season after a superb performance against Arsenal, while Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen (rated 84) joins him from the Barclays Premier League after he scored the winning goal against Hull last weekend.
