“Always believe I can score”

“Always believe I can score”

13:28 – Tjaronn Chery surprisingly put Maccabi Haifa 1-0 against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening. It was not enough for the game, because because Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar all scored, the French still won the game 1-3. Chery had already planned to score before the game.

“I always believe I can score. Yesterday I thought I could score and today I did,” Chery said after the game. The former player of ADO Den Haag and FC Groningen knows that it is certainly not obvious that he could do it against such a big club. “I am happy with that goal. It is not easy to score against a team with such qualities,” he said. Still, he’d rather have something tangible left over from the evening. “We played a really good game, but it’s about the result.”

Messi’s records
Messi used the opportunity to break some records. After Wednesday evening, for example, he surpassed his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to scoring against various opponents in the Champions League. Messi has now scored against 39 different clubs in the multi-million ball. The Portuguese remains 38 years old this season, as he is only in the Europa League with Manchester United.

In addition, Messi is the first player to score in the Champions League for the eighteenth (!) consecutive season. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) can reach that record if he manages to score a goal this season. To unseat Ronaldo as the top scorer in Europe’s most important tournament, the Argentine will have to work hard. Ronaldo has scored no less than 140 goals so far, while Messi remains with 126 goals after Wednesday.
