Earlier this month, when Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick against Sevilla, he reached a milestone. He had scored his 253rd goal in La Liga, making him the all-time top scorer in the elite Spanish soccer league. His first goal came on May 1, 2005, and it took him just 289 matches to break the record previously held by Telmo Zarra. If you're late to appreciating the artistry of Messi, not to worry. Above, we have a video that runs 31 minutes and brings together footage of every Messi goal in La Liga -- all 253 in a row. To see the goals presented in another fashion, check out this infographic.
