Last year, the 30-year-old became the Albiceleste's highest goalscorer in history when he surpassed Gabriel Batistuta's tally of 54 international strikes.
Batistuta, a former forward who played for Fiorentina, Roma and Inter Milan, among others, has since revealed he was slightly displeased when Messi broke his record, although he was happy to be beaten by someone he considers to be from outer space.
"Did it annoy me that Messi took the record? A little, yes," he told television network Telefe.
"It was a title that I held. It's not just any old thing. You go around the world and people say, 'He's the top scorer for the Argentina national team'.
"I think I got to 54 or something like that. Lionel has more and will get almost double what I did.
"But the advantage I have is that I'm second to an extraterrestrial."
Messi has since scored 61 goals in 123 games for Argentina.
