Flamengo dispute Messi record
Leo Messi's record for goals in a calendar year, now at 88 after his brace against Cordoba last night, is being questioned by Flamengo.
The club claim that Zico scored 89 goals in 1979, a year in which the player was injured for two months.
"We are upset. Messi still hasn't passed the milestone," Bruno Lucena, the head of Flamengo's research and statistics department, Lance. "If he had played for the whole year, he would have scored more than 100 goals."
