*His unprecedented  Supercopa de Espana Exploit Re-visited





Success   requires wisdom and wisdom is the application of skill, for your skill is your most trusted weapon” –Late Wizard of sculpturing/painting, Obong Ambassador Fred Archibong 1998 interview with the highly respected THISDAY STYLE MAGAZINE


When it comes to the discussion centered on “WHO IS WORLD’S GREATEST FOOTBALLER EVER” a lot of global argument usually preceded such subject



The world soccer ruling body, jointly names Pele and Maradona as world best footballers of last century
Today, two names have been added to the best footballer ever, in person of Christian Ronaldo and Lionel Messi-together, the quadruple makes up world best ever
But individually, this wordsmith has often defended his choice of who is the best, and I  have never hidden my love of Pele being the best, the Brazilian speaks to the ball like none of them, it is not just about scoring, he  eats and  is often very “Romantic”  with the round leather game
History books told us that when a certain legend called Weldener de Brito, first discovered Pele and brought him to Sao Paolo, he was so confident and declared the young boy to the amazement of the club directors that “This boy will be the greatest player ever”

It was not so long before De Briti was proved right, when the young Pele scored a remarkable goal in his debut encounter for the Brazilian national team, even before his teenage level
He was to proceed further to be winner of four world cups, and in his lustrous career scored record of 1,280 goals in a record 1,360 appearances-averaging a goal in ever international match he played for his beloved country
Today though the world will not argue over the place of Pele-,who was a complete athlete, blessed with abundance skill, balance and deft dribbling abilities-what the world will likely argue about is the place of  Messi, also as the best of his generation
One must not necessarily be a fan of Barcelona or Argentina to give Messi his place of dignity in annals of world best hall of fame, here is a man that sets great standard for himself and breaks his own record, only last week the list of three new records that Messi sets was released, in case you missed out of it, your new refreshing CERUTTI WEEKEND SPORTS MEGAMIX here present it to you in grand style for your weekend delight and motivation
MESSI SETS THREE RECORDS

·        When a short while  ago Messi  scored and provided an assist to help Barca win their first trophy of season  after they beat  Sevila 3-0(5-0) IN  their Spanish  Super CUP  tie at CAMP  NOU he was up for some  new records
1.    MOST GOALS IN THE HISTORY OF THE SPANISH SUPER CUP

Prior to the game Lionel Messi held the record  for  the most goals scored by a player in the  history of the Supercopa de Espana with 11 strikes
The lion Messi headed goal in the second half took his tally to twelve extending his record above his closest rival Raul Gonzalez who netted 7 for Real Madrid

2.     FIRST AND ONLY PLAYER TO SCORE IN SIX SPANISH SUPER CUP

With the goal against SEVILLA, Lionel Messi became the first player to score in six different Supercopa de Espana tournament, no other player has ever scored in more than four editions

3. FIRST AND ONLY PLAYER TO SCORE IN SIX SPANISH SUPER CUPS
With the win against Sevilla, Lionel Messi achieved his 7th Spanish Super Cup title as a player, setting a new record of player with the most number of Supercopa de Espana titles in the history of Spanish football, Messi shares the award with club captain Andres Iniesta, and both players have lifted the trophy on record seven times
