Lionel MESSI breaks Champions League record in FC Barcelona win

PSV manager and former Barcelona midfielder Mark Van Bommel could not disguise his disappointment at an opportunity lost for the Dutch champions, who will finish bottom of the group. The greatest player of his generation has scored yet another incredible goal for Barcelona in the Champions League.

The No.10 has not featured in the middle of the attack since the start of the Luis Enrique era, before he switched places with Suarez.

"We had problems with De Jong, he is tough to defend", Valverde said.

Koke opened the scoring in the third minute after his deflected shot fooled the goalkeeper, before Antoine Griezmann added to the lead.

'We gave everything, had a good idea, a good way of playing and created so many opportunities. Even though the Catalans had begun to create openings of their own, they were lucky to go in level at the break. And this year we've won two and drawn one which we should have won.

Wayne Rooney says farewell as England beat United States
As England's record-scorer bid farewell, Alexander-Arnold was joined by striker Callum Wilson in getting their first goals for England.

The Argentina superstar's 61st-minute strike in Eindhoven was his 106th goal in Europe's top competition, one more than long-time LaLiga rival Ronaldo managed for Real Madrid before his switch to Juventus.

Messi weaved and turned his way past several defenders before exchanging passes with Ousmane Dembele and collecting the ball in the box.

Luuk De Jong grabbed a consolation for the home side eight minutes from time but they remain on a single point from their five group games to date.

Messi, despite being two years younger than Ronaldo, was actually the first man to overtake Raul's previous record of 71 goals, when he scored a hat-trick against APOEL back in November 2014.

Of course, it is in the months to come that Messi's determination to win will be put to the test, but the Argentine is in the kind of form that could drive Barcelona all the way to the final in Madrid next June. Tottenham will be hoping they can capitalise on Barca's complacency.
