ARGENTINIAN NATIONAL TEAM
Messi has not had quite as much success on the international level that he has had with Barcelona, although he did lead Argentina to the World Cup Final in 2014, where they were just barely outmatched by Germany.
Messi is already has the second most goals in La Liga history despite being just 26 (turning 27 on June 24th). He has scored the most goals ever for a club in a season and over the course of an entire year. He is Barcelona's all-time leading goalscorer in official competitions with over 350.
