Lionel Messi fails: Snubbing a child, sent off in 40 seconds and more ...

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson discusses Lionel Messi breaking Telmo Zarra's all-time La Liga goal-scoring record with a hat-trick against Sevilla.

Now that Lionel Messi has finally broken the Spanish La Liga goal-scoring record, here are 10 of his best strikes from down the years.

Note: These are all, of course, goals scored only in La Liga.

10. The first -- vs. Albacete, May 2005 

Let us start at the beginning. Messi made his competitive debut for Barcelona in October 2004, coming on as a substitute for Deco against Espanyol, but was very much eased into the first-team -- making only one start in the rest of that season -- in a pointless...

Burnley's win at Stoke offers hope of Premier League survival

Burnley Manager Sean Dyche spoke to the press following his side's win over Stoke City.

Burnley are off the bottom of the Premier League after a surprising 2-1 win at Stoke, a result that fills the team and the fans with confidence that survival is possible.

The Clarets were excellent at the Britannia, a stadium they have a better record at than any other club. A huge defensive performance showed Burnley's heart and desire, but this was a victory built on the back of sublime attacking in the first 20 minutes of the game.

Japan's veterans find harmony to sound Asian Cup warning

Midfielder Shinji Kagawa played a vital role in Japan's impressive second half against Australia in Osaka.

After indifferent performances with experimental teams, Japan boss Javier Aguirre decided to get the band back together last Tuesday. A lineup that wouldn't have been out of place at the 2011 Asian Cup final against Australia saw the Samurai Blue again singing from the same songbook and hitting those familiar notes in the second half of a friendly against the same opposition in Osaka. At the end of a 2-1 win, the fact that everything seemed so much better with the old guard in place was a source...

Ronald Koeman's high-flying Southampton next bring their goal-scoring roadshow to Villa Park.

If there is one club who really didn't want an international break at the moment, it is Southampton, and so they will be raring to get back into the swing of the Premier League at Villa Park on Monday night.

Saints are flying, and a visit to Birmingham represents the last 'golden' opportunity for another three points before a tricky run of fixtures. Villa will be no pushovers of course, but with their ever declining form and a nasty growing injury list, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman and his team...
