Take a bow, Lionel Messi.

The best soccer player in the world added another line to his resume Tuesday night in the 2016 Copa America semifinals against Team USA by scoring a free-kick goal, which made him Argentina’s all-time leading scorer.

In typical Messi style, the record-setting goal was something out of a dream.

It was the 55th goal of Messi’s international career, passing Gabriel Batistuta for first place on Argentina’s all-time list.

He also tallied the assist on Argentina’s first goal of the evening.
