The spectacular goal Lionel Messi scored against Mexico at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar put him on the level with Diego Maradona & Cristiano Ronaldo. Furthermore, Messi was the youngest (18 years 357 days) & the oldest (35 years 155 days) player to score & assist in a single World Cup game since 1966. The number of World Cup appearances by Messi & Maradona now stands at 21 between them.
