All football fans should watch this video now because history was made last night as Barcelona's Lionel Messi set a new goal-scoring record for the most goals in a calendar year, trumping Gerd Muller's previous tally of 85. Against Real Betis, Messi scored his 85th and 86th goals of 2012 - a stunning return that may never be topped again. Even Pele only ever amassed 75 in his best year. The stats therefore now officially confirm Messi as the greatest goal-scorer of all time. The greatest player of all time is a far harder accolade to judge, but after this year, you'd be hard pushed to look beyond the diminutive Argentinian.
