Lionel Messi, the Argentine forward, scored goal number 600 for Barcelona in a 3-0 win over Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final.
Earlier in the match, Messi scored a tap-in goal putting him at 599 goals, and later on, he netted a magnificent free-kick from around 25 yards to put goal 600 under his belt.

While the goal was monumental for the superstar, he remained humble in his post-game interview.
“It was beautiful when it went in but I was lucky that the ball lodged up there in the corner,” Messi said.
