All the players who have assisted Lionel Messi just once during his career

Lionel Messi brought up 600 goals for Barcelona and Argentina, but let's not forget about those who helped him along the way, even if they only assisted him once

So that’s it then. Lionel Messi has brought up 600 goals for Argentina and Barcelona. Football completed.

But let’s not focus on Messi for a second. Let’s pay homage to those that helped him get there. No fewer than 57 players have assisted Messi for club and country.

It’s an incredible list of players, with Dani Alves at the top, followed by Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Luis Suarez, Neymar, Thierry Henry, Ronaldinho, Juan Roman Riquelme… we could go on.

But we’re not interested in them. Their stories are already known.

We want to talk about the players who have assisted Messi on just one occasion.

Once is enough to write yourself a little piece of history when you’re playing with an Argentinian GOAT.

In fact, from now on we’re only referring to Messi as the GOAT.
