Budweiser have celebrated Lionel Messi’s record-breaking 644th goal by sending each of the goalkeepers he scored against a personalised beer.
The Barcelona captain’s goal against Valladolid on Tuesday night saw him break Pele’s long-standing record for most goals for a single club.
Congratulations on your great achievement of 644 goals, Leo. I never like conceding but the challenge of stopping you brings the best out of goalkeepers too. Thank you @budfootball for the special gift. #BeAKing #Messi pic.twitter.com/3Nmn9dVycu— Jan Oblak (@oblakjan) December 24, 2020
As a result, the beer company has sent every shot stopper Messi has overcome one beer for every goal he scored against them, with each bottle numbered on the front of the bottle.
