Budweiser Send Beer Out To Each Goalkeeper Lionel Messi Has Scored Past
Budweiser have sent a beer to every goalkeeper that Lionel Messi has scored a goal against for Barcelona, to commemorate his 644 goals for the club.
Messi has broken many records in his career and on Tuesday he completed yet another impressive one. His goal against Valladolid took him to 644 in all competitions for the Catalan giants and meant he surpassed Pele's 643 goals for Santos as the most ever scored for one club.
The 33-year-old has been traumatising goalkeepers with all those goals for the past 16 years, since he made his debut against Espanyol in October 2004, and they've all been reminded about their trauma.
Budweiser have sent a numbered bottle of beer to every goalkeeper that the six time Ballon d'Or has scored against, and numbered with which strike of Messi's that was.
Obviously that means some goalkeepers are going to be well stocked on the beers for the Christmas period, Merry Christmas indeed.

Speaking exclusively to SPORTbible, Samuel Eto'o praised his former teammate for breaking Pele's record, saying, "I believe he is the greatest of this life and also of the other life.
"When he is playing, you really have the impression that he's playing a pick up game with his friends."
