Lionel Messi Scores All FIVE Of Argentina's Goals Against Estonia, He's Not Human

Lionel Messi single-handedly destroyed Estonia on Sunday evening, scoring all FIVE goals in the rout.

The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner shone in Argentina's 'Finalissima' victory over Italy at Wembley on Wednesday, assisting two goals in a 3-0 win.

He then followed that up by going goal-crazy for the Copa America winners against European minnows Estonia at El Sadar, home of CA Osasuna.

Messi hit a 47-minute hat-trick and then helped himself to a further two goals to add to his ridiculous Argentina tally in the 71st and 76th minute.

This is the second time Messi has scored five goals in a single fixture - the first coming for Barcelona in a Champions League humbling of Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.

Estonia became the 30th nation he's scored against for Argentina and he's now on a staggering 769 career goals for club and country.

Messi may not have had his most productive season for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring just six times in Ligue One, but he's been back to his jaw-dropping best with the Argentina national team.

And his teammates absolutely adore him. After leading Argentina to victory over Italy, pretty much every player was desperate for a picture with Messi and the trophy.

The 34-year-old happily obliged for picture after picture as though he was doing his own meet and greet.

Messi turns 35 later this month but his magic is not running out just yet and he's shaping up well for what could be his final World Cup in Qatar.

Under Lionel Scaloni, Argentina have now gone 33 games unbeaten and Messi has been reborn.

Commenting on his five-goal haul, Scaloni said: "I don't know what else to say about Messi, it's very difficult.

"You have no words left to describe him. Everything he generates is unique and it's a pleasure to have him in this group. I only have words of thanks to him. It's a pleasure to see him."
