Lionel Messi became the third player in history to score over 100 goals in the team's uniform, but the first to do so as a world champion.

Before him are Cristiano Ronaldo with 122 goals and the Iranian Ali Dei with 109, but of course they were not and probably will not be world champions like Messi.

"The Flea" completed a hat-trick within 37 minutes of the opening whistle with 0:7 over the small and humble Curaçao and the world champions continued their big celebration in front of their fans, after at the weekend they also beat Panama on the night between Thursday and Friday.

102 goals and that's probably not all.

"It's a wonderful way to close the national team week," wrote Messi after the game on Instagram, "I hope we can continue to experience moments like this and that this madness will never end!!!".

Coach Lionel Scaloni was asked for the umpteenth time to comment on Messi's future in the Albiceleste uniform and again said: "I'm not in his head, I don't know what he's thinking and I don't know what he's planning. What I want is for him to continue playing and be happy. He reached 102 goals And I hope there will be more, he deserves it for everything he contributes and does. I'm also happy that he reached such an achievement on Argentine soil."
