Lionel Messi became the third male player to surpass 100 international goal after scoring a hat-trick in Argentina's 7-0 friendly thrashing of Curacao at Santiago del Estero on Tuesday, reported from National News.

Seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi opened the scoring against the Caribbean island minnows on 20 minutes for his 100th goal and soon added another just after the half-hour mark to make it 3-0. The Paris Saint-Germain star then completed his hat-trick on 37 minutes with the fifth as Argentina toyed with their overmatched opponents. It was his seventh hat-trick for the national team.

He remains third in the all-time list, behind great rival Cristiano Ronaldo (122) of Portugal and Iran's Ali Daei (109).
