Argentina beat Venezuela 4-1 in the Copa America quarterfinals on June 18 and advanced to the semi-finals. Lionel Messi scored the second goal of the match. He has now scored a total of 54 goals for his country. That means he’s tied for Argentina’s all-time scoring record, together with legendary forward Gabriel Batistuta. But Messi sets greater store by team awards than by personal achievements. “I am happy to have equaled Batistuta’s record, but my head is focused on lifting the Copa America,” he said after the game. The five-time World Player of the Year has yet to win an international title for Argentina. He came close when the team made it to the final of the 2014 World Cup, only to lose in an agonizingly close game.
