Hyderabad: Lionel Messi has achieved a new milestone as he became only the third player in the history of football to score the 90th international goal. He achieved the feat with his goal in a World Cup warm-up friendly match against Jamaica, with Argentina winning 3-0.

Lionel Messi came off the bench as a substitute to score crucial goals, including a free-kick – 90th of his international career, to usher Argentina to a thumping win at the Red Bull Arena, New Jersey.  The Argentine played the super-sub, bringing up two goals against Jamaica in the second half of the game.

Portugal superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently placed first in the list of most goals scored in the history of football. The next on the list is Ali Daei (Iran).

Ronaldo and Daei have scored 117 and 109 international goals respectively.
