(SAINT LOUIS, Mo.) – For countless fans around the world, beer is the perfect way to celebrate your goal-scoring team. For 160 professional goalkeepers around the world, getting a custom bottle of beer will serve as a reminder of the results they have allowed.

Brewery Anheuser-Busch is celebrating a record 644th goal by Argentine football star Lionel Messi for his club, FC Barcelona, ​​sending a bottle of Budweiser to each of the 160 goalkeepers against whom Messi has scored. Messi’s 644th goal scored on Tuesday against Real Valladolid put him on top of the goals scored for one club – ahead of Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo and all the other players who have entered the field.

The 33-year-old tried to leave Barcelona over the summer, before deciding to stay in his final year of contract just a week later.

Messi has already scored the most goals in the history of Spanish La Liga, the most hat tricks in the Spanish Premier League and the most goals scored for his club and country in one year.
