Messi Hits 650th Career Goal With Sublime Free-Kick Against Athletic Club

Lionel Messi scored his 650th goal for Barcelona with a sumptuous free-kick against Athletic Club on Sunday.

Lionel Messi scored his 650th goal for Barcelona with a sumptuous free-kick against Athletic Club on Sunday.

The Argentina international whipped a shot into goalkeeper Unai Simon's top-left corner from 25 yards midway through the first half to put Barca 1-0 up in their LaLiga clash at Camp Nou.

Messi was in the headlines earlier in the day when leaked details of his eye-watering contract emerged.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner scored his first goal for Barca in May 2005 at the age of 17, beautifully lobbing Albacete goalkeeper Raul Valbuena.

He has gone on to become far and away the club's record scorer, overtaking Cesar Rodriguez's previous mark of 232 in 2012.
