MOST COMMENTED

"Leo's records are spectacular. It's spectacular when you think that he scores so many goals. Some few players reach these numbers in seven or eight seasons, he does it in one. And most of his goals are great goals."

-- Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova on Argentine Lionel Messi, who scored for the 75th and 76th time in 2012 in Barcelona's 4-2 victory at Mallorca to surpass Pele's milestone of goals in a calendar year and come within nine goals of Gerd Mueller's record. Pele scored 75 goals for Brazil and Santos in 1958. Mueller had 85 in 1972 for West Germany and Bayern Munich. (AP)
