Lionel Messi Equals Argentina's All-time Appearance Record


Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has now earned his 147th cap for his country, equaling ex-Barca defender Javier Mascherano's all-time appearance record for La Albiceleste.

 

The Barcelona superstar achieved the record on Monday night June 21, after he started in his country's 1-0 Copa América win over Paraguay, helping them through to the quarterfinals of the continental championship.

 

Papu Gómez's 10th-minute goal was enough to earn a narrow win and maintain Argentina's unbeaten start to the tournament.

 

Messi, who turns 34 on Thursday, June 24 is already his country's record goalscorer with 73 goals at the international level.
