Messi has only Brazil left to score against
Lionel Messi has scored against every opponent in the World Cup qualifying (moreover, at least twice) except for one. This only exception is Brazil.
But he has now a chance to eliminate this lack in the upcoming round of the tournament, where Argentina will meet Brazil.
If Messi manages to find the net in this game, he will become the 5th player in the history of the tournament to score against all 9 opponents.
The first to achieve this was an Ecuadorian Agustín Delgado in 2005. Then 3 players more joined him, Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani in 2016, Alexis Sánchez in 2021.
The ranking published here shows the breakdown of how many goals a player scored against each opponent.
