Lionel Messi is 35 years old. Here are some of his goals, records, and milestones

Lionel Messi is 35 years old. Here are some of his goals, records, and milestones
Lionel Messi's birthday is on Friday, and he will be 35 years old.

Messi is also in the last year of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, though the club has the option to add another year. This could be a big year for him as he winds down his career.

Even though there is no proof that Messi is thinking about giving up at the highest level, his age and contract situation suggest that 2022-23 could be his last season at a major European club.

So, to celebrate the Barcelona and Argentina legend's big day, we thought we would take a look back at some of the amazing things he is done so far in his career, as well as some of the big goals he may still reach.

Messi will be at PSG in 2021-22.

Messi moved to PSG with tears in his eyes on a free transfer in August 2021, after Barcelona could not offer him a new five-year contract because they owed €1.2 billion.

Since he had only played for one club since he was 13, the transfer caused a stir in football. Many wondered if a player of Messi's size would be able to adapt to a new environment after spending so many years doing things HIS way at HIS club.

Messi is still in good shape, but he has not been able to match the insanely high output he had at Barcelona. In his first season in Paris, he scored the fewest goals of any season in his entire career.

Messi scored 11 goals in 34 games in all competitions in 2021-22. He averaged 0.345 goals per 90 minutes for his club, which was his lowest output ever and his worst since 2007-08, when he scored 0.43 goals per 90 minutes (16 goals in 40 games) while Barca was plagued by injuries.

Messi, on the other hand, helped out with 15 assists in all competitions, though they were all in Ligue 1. This is about the same as the average number of assists (20 in all competitions) he had in the nine club seasons before this one at Camp Nou.

Messi also added to his huge collection of trophies by winning Ligue 1 in his first season. This was the 35th major club award of his career.

What Messi and Argentina are doing to get ready for the World Cup in 2022

Messi's next big tournament will be the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar. Argentina qualified for the tournament early, securing their spot with a 0-0 draw against rivals Brazil in November 2021.

Before the aforementioned CONMEBOL qualifier against Brazil, Argentina had not lost a single game in 26 tries, a streak that went back more than two years. Since then, they have not lost in six more games, extending their winning streak into 2022.

Overall, Messi and his teammates have not lost a game in 33 games. The last time they lost was in July 2019, when Brazil beat them 2-0 to knock them out of the Copa America semifinals. During that time, Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 in the final of the Copa America in 2021 to win their first major international title in 28 years.

Messi has kept up a very high level of output for his country, even though his numbers for PSG have gone down. However, the forward's output in international football has gone up since 2021. In fact, he has been doing better for Argentina in every category per 90 minutes.

Messi has won two major awards with Argentina (the Copa America in 2021 and the Finalissima in 2022) in just 1,769 minutes of football, while he only won one award with PSG (the Ligue 1 title in 2021-22) in 5,489 minutes of play time last season.

Messi has also done better than himself in goals scored per 90 minutes (0.76 for Argentina, 0.64 for PSG), shots taken (4.6 vs. 4.5), one-on-one dribbles attempted (8.0 vs. 6.1), chances created (2.49 vs. 2.36), ball recoveries (3.1 vs. 2.1), and even tackles (3.1 vs. 2.1). (0.71 vs 0.49).

Messi's teams at club and international levels may use different strategies, which could explain the differences. However, the numbers seem to show that when playing for Argentina, Messi gets more touches on the ball and is better at shooting, dribbling, making chances, and working off the ball.

What you can do after 35

Since most professional football players retire in their mid-30s, it is not surprising that they start to lose their edge around that time. Now, we all know that Messi is not "most footballers," but since 2010-11, only a handful of players have been able to contribute to 20 or more goals in a single season after turning 35.

In that time, only six experienced players in Europe's Big Five leagues have done this, and most of them did it in Italy's Serie A.

Three players have scored 20 goals in a single season after turning 35: Luca Toni (2013-14 and 2014-15), Antonio Di Natale (2021-13 and 2014-15), and Messi's old rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 32 goals for Juventus in 2020-21 and 21 goals for Manchester United the next year.

Fabio Quagliarella (34 goals for Sampdoria in 2018-19), Francesco Totti (24 goals for Roma in 2012-13), and Burak Yilmaz are the other players who have done it (21 for Lille in 2020-21.)

He still has the records

Messi's place in football history is already set. Since making his debut for Barcelona in October 2004, when he was 18, he has won 38 senior titles.

In that time, only one player, Brazilian right-back Dani Alves, has won more senior competition trophies than Messi, and he happened to play with Messi for most of that time. Alves leads the way with 40 trophies.

Messi's only trophy he has not won yet is the FIFA World Cup, which he almost won with Argentina in 2014 but did not because Germany beat them in the final. It is very likely that Qatar 2022 will be his last chance to make up for that mistake.

Messi still holds a large number of individual records that are unlikely to ever be beat.

Some of these are, but are not limited to, the following:

— Barcelona has scored the most official goals (672), more than any other club.

— Barcelona has the most assists for a single team, with 268.

— In 2011-12, Barcelona scored the most goals in a single club season with 73.

— Only player to ever score more than 30 goals in 12 straight seasons and more than 40 goals in 13 straight seasons.

— Most goals (27), assists (14), and games (45) against Real Madrid in the El Clasico derby.

— Holder of the Guinness World Record for most goals scored for both club and country in a single year (91 goals in official games in 2012.)

And believe us when we say that this is just the tip of a very big iceberg.

Messi could still break records or reach milestones

According to records kept by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics, both Messi and Ronaldo are almost ready to join the ridiculously small 500 League Goals club (IFFHS)

Messi has scored 480 goals for his club team as of the 2022–23 season, which is 17 goals less than Ronaldo. With 497 goals, the 37-year-old Portugal international is just one hat trick away from joining the likes of Ferenc Puskas (514 goals), Josef Bican (518 goals), Romario (544 goals), and Pele (604) in the highest ranks of goal scorers.

Messi has scored 787 goals in all official games. He needs 13 more to join Ronaldo (821 goals) as the only two players in history to score 800 or more goals in official games.

Messi has scored 86 goals for Argentina, but Ronaldo has scored 117 goals for Portugal, which is the world record for men's football. Messi still has a ways to go to catch up to his rival. Ali Daei of Iran is the only other man to score over 100.

Messi was the second-oldest player to win the Ballon d'Or in 2021, when he was 34 years and 158 days old. He is the all-time leader with seven wins. Ronaldo is his closest competitor in that area (5), just like he is behind Messi in the list of all-time European Golden Shoe winners (6 vs. 4.)

Messi is two years younger than Ronaldo, so it is unlikely that Ronaldo will be able to catch up to him before he retires. Still, Sir Stanley Matthews won the first Ballon d'Or in 1956 when he was 41 years and 320 days old, so maybe there is still time!
