Lionel Messi: Bonafide History maker

Lionel Messi has once again written his name into FC Barcelona’s history books following the club’s UEFA Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday.

Making his 150th appearance for Barcelona in European competitions, Messi marked the occasion in typical fashion by netting his side’s opening goal from the penalty spot in a 2-1 win over their Ukrainian opponents.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner’s effort came just four minutes and fifty-three seconds into the encounter and saw Messi add another record to his name, becoming the scorer of the fastest-ever recorded penalty goal by a Barcelona player in the Champions League.
