Messi converted a penalty in the second half of that encounter, netting his 68th goal for Argentina in the process.
As a consequence, he became the second-highest active international goalscorer, drawing level India's Sunil Chhetri, as stats expert @Twitugal pointed out.
Ronaldo is now the only active player with more goals at international level than Messi, with the Portugal captain sitting on 88 strikes for his country.
In addition, Messi also closed in on South American all-time record goalscorer Pele. The legendary Brazilian scored 77 times for the Selecao – more than any other player in South American football history.
Messi is now just nine goals shy of Pele's record, while the latter's countryman Ronaldo Nazario is in third spot among South America's record scorers with 62 strikes.
Neymar, Luis Suarez and Alexis Sanchez are also among South America's record scorers – you can find the top 10 in the gallery above!
