Beer company Budweiser has celebrated Lionel Messi’s 644 goal achievement by sending out bottles of beer to every goalkeeper the Argentine has scored against.
The beer company sent a numbered bottle of beer to every goalkeeper labelling it with which strike of Messi’s he scored against them.
The beer brand also released a short film which was titled ‘Kings aren’t made overnight’. The video showed Lionel Messi making notes for every goalkeeper he scored against. The note was sent alongside the beer to all the goalkeepers.
"In this game, no goal is easy"
Which is why we’ve created a custom bottle for all 644 goals Leo Messi scored. Yes, that’s 644 unique bottles.
