International press hail Leo Messi's historic year

Media outlets from around the world took notice when the Argentine broke Gerd Müller's all-time record for goals scored in a calendar year

It took Leo Messi 343 days to score 86 goals in 2012, a mark that sees the Argentine clear of the record of goals scored in a calendar year set by Gerd ‘Der Bomber’ Müller in 1972. Press from around the globe took notice when Messi fired twice past Real Betis Balompié’s keeper this Sunday to break the 40-year-old record. The Blaugrana forward has three more games left in 2012 to add to his record-breaking tally of 86 goals.
