Lionel Messi might only be 24 years old, but he's been doing this professional football thing for a while. Messi has been putting goals in the back of the net for Barcelona for eight years already. His impressive footwork and scoring tirades have given enthusiasts across the world reason to believe he could be the best to ever play the game. In Barca's 5-3 victory over Granada, he took another firm step in that direction with a hat trick that made him Barcelona's all time leading scorer. Now at 234, he passed the great Cesar Rodriguez, who played from 1939 to 1955. Check out goal 233 above.
