Lionel Messi broke a 40-year-old scoring record Sunday with his 86th goal of 2012. Messi’s two goals against Real Betis put him past German great Gerd Muller who compiled 85 in 1972.
The goal record or not, Messi already had Muller beat in one important department. Take a good look at Muller’s 1972 haircut at the beginning of the video. Look hard, I mean really “mullet” over. Messi was already one up on Muller … by a hair.
