Lionel Messi's Incredible List Of Underrated National Team Records

By Mike Parrott

Lionel Messi is known for his incredible record for Barcelona, however his records for the Argentina national team are just as good. A Twitter thread showed the incredible, yet underrated records Messi owns in regards to National tournaments.

To a lot of fans, Lionel Messi is seen as being an underachiever for the Argentina National Team. With three runners-up medals at the Copa America and another runners-up medal at the World Cup, Messi hasn't won anything for his National Team besides an Olympic Gold Medal in 2008 and the Under-20s World Cup in 2005.

However, some of the shortcoming can easily be attributed to the players around him, and this can be shown with the incredible stats that Messi owns in many of the national tournaments.
