Iker Casillas Gets Sly Dig In At Lionel Messi In Budweiser Promotion Reaction

Budweiser certainly love Lionel Messi, having sent around limited edition bottles of their beer to every goalkeeper who conceded one of the Barcelona legend's record-breaking 644 goals for the club.

When Messi became the highest scoring player for single club, beating Pele's record back in December, with the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Jan Oblak, and many, many more goalkeepers congratulating the forward on his feat.

Casillas, despite having been on the opposing team in some of Messi's biggest matches, was no different, praising the 33-year-old's remarkable talent.

He said on Twitter: "I didn't think they would arrive, but here are my personalised bottles of Budweiser! Congratulations Leo Messi on your 644th goal record. I remember well when you scored goals 264 and 265. Good game, good draw, and good thing you never scored against me again!"

Messi has scored 17 goals against the Spaniard, which is the second most behind only former Valencia stopper Diego Alves.

Those 17 strikes include the El Clasico hat trick that really announced Messi's talent to the world in 2007, as well as countless other goals in one of the biggest matches in world football.

However, despite this record against Messi, Casillas was able to get a little dig in on his old rival. The goalkeeper reminded the forward that he hasn't scored against him since a brace in 2012.

However, this probably has something to do with Casillas not playing against the Argentine so much since then, after his falling out with Jose Mourinho and subsequent departure from Real Madrid.
