Lionel Messi made history Tuesday with his 644th goal for Barcelona FC, as the tally moved him past Pelé on all-time list for most goals with a club.
To commemorate the occasion, Budweiser created a custom bottle for each of Messi’s 644 goals — and sent them to the 160 goalkeepers Messi scored the goals against.
Most goals scored for one club. We'll never see another like him 🐐

“In this game, no goal is easy,” Messi says in a promotional video posted by Budweiser Football.
The bottles are adorned with the number and a logo of Messi from behind in a classic celebration pose.
Former Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon posted an advertisement on Twitter of him posing with his two bottles, numbers 514 and 515.
