Lionel Messi

It was the first time ever that Lionel Messi scored inside the first two minutes of a game when he opened the scoring for Argentina against Australia on Thursday in a friendly.

The 35-year-old featured from the off against the Socceroos, and it didn't take long for him to make his mark.

Within the opening 120 seconds of the game, Messi was able to capitalise on Chelsea midfielder, Enzo Fernandez's assist to curl a beautiful shot home, marking a career milestone.

As reported by Goal, the La Albiceleste maestro has scored over 800 goals in his brilliant career, yet he has never scored in the opening two minutes of a game.

Thursday's goal against Australia in Beijing's Workers' Stadium has ticked that off the list, meaning Messi now only needs a goal inside the first 60 seconds of a game to complete the set.

Argentina are undertaking a post-season tour of Asia and fielded a strong team to face the side they knocked out in the last-16 of the World Cup, which they went on to win in Qatar.

Messi was instrumental against Australia on Thursday but will not feature in Monday's friendly against Indonesia.
