Lionel Messi had reason to celebrate on Tuesday, as he collected a record fifth Golden Shoe.

The Barcelona captain was once again Europe’s top scorer after netting 34 league goals in 2017/18.

Unsurprisingly Messi is the first player to win the Golden Shoe five times.

On current form you wouldn’t bet against him picking up No. 6 next year.
