FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi scored his 500th career goal against Spanish side Valencia on Sunday.
The Argentine forward reached the landmark after scoring in the 63rd minute of his team's 2-1 loss to Los Che.
Messi, who has made 525 appearances for the Catalan club, has now scored 450 goals for Barcelona, while he also has 50 strikes in 107 matches for Argentina.
The 28-year-old scored his first goal for the Blaugrana in May 2005, as a 17-year-old against Albacete, while his first strike for the national team came little less than a year later, in March 2006, during a 3-2 defeat to Croatia.
Messi is Barcelona's all-time leading scorer, while his 50 goals for Argentina puts him in second place behind Albiceleste legend Gabriel Batistuta.
The Argentina captain has won 26 trophies with Barca, but is still waiting for a first major honour with his senior national side, having been a runner-up at the FIFA World Cup and the Copa America over the past two seasons.
The 500 goals have come in 632 appearances across all competitions for club and country.
