“I learned it recently, I didn’t know. It’s a pleasure to be able to continue to achieve these kinds of records. I think Diego would be super happy for me because he always showed me a lot of love, he was always happy when things went well for me.” Messi said.

Despite missing a penalty – his 39th career foul from the spot – the Argentina captain said he was “happy” with this “big fight”.

“We achieved our first objective which was to get out of the group after starting the way we did (a shock 2-1 loss against Saudi Arabia),” Messi said.

“I was really frustrated to have missed the penalty, because I knew that a goal can change the whole game, that it makes you play in a different way. But I think from the penalty kick I missed, the team came out stronger.”

Messi, who still needs a World Cup winner’s medal to cement his legacy as one of the sport’s greatest players, believes Argentina are moving up through the gears at just the right time. “After the first goal, everything went our way. We started again to do what we had been trying to do since the start of the WC, but which for various reasons we had not been able to achieve.

“Having been able to do that today, it gives us confidence for the future.” Next up for Argentina is a Round of 16 clash against Australia on Saturday.

“We know that now everything will be very difficult. That regardless of the opponent, it will be complicated. We have recently seen, to our own detriment, that any opponent can play a good game and win.”
