Top Ten Best Records of Lionel MessiThe best ever records set by Lionel Messi, the best soccer player in the world.
In December 2012, Messi's record seemed to be a world one. But very soon, the Zambian FA claimed and proved that the great striker of the country Godfrey Chitalu (4th international scorer of all times with 79 goals) netted 107 goals in the calendar year 1972.
FIFA was asked for verification but nevertheless, FIFA spokesman declared that an official FIFA world record had never existed, and as it's not association's authority, FIFA will not recognise any record.
P. S. The doubt of Pelé's goals which is commented, is out of question as all goals of the Brazilian legend are known : 1,281 during his senior active career and 770 (combined RSSSF and IFFHS data) in 833 official games. Messi bagged 662 in the same number of games. Numbers are against the Argentinian.
