Former Barcelona forward Gary Lineker has praised Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi after the latter broke Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United's record for goals scored without the use of a penalty.



After scoring the game-winning goal in Sunday's 1-0 French Ligue 1 victory over Olympique Lyonnais for PSG, Messi accomplished the feat.

Neymar glided past several Lyon defenders before finding Messi, who curled a delightful effort past goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

It was his sixth goal in 11 appearances for PSG so far this season, and he is wowing fans with captivating displays.

However, Lineker was impressed by Messi’s goal, which has now taken the Argentine captain above long-time rival Ronaldo for non-penalty goals scored.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: “With 672 non-penalty goals, Messi sneaks ahead of Ronaldo, having played 150 games fewer." The numbers in these two posts are nuts. "
