It was surely just a matter of time, but Lionel Messi reached another landmark on Wednesday.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner broke the 500-goal plateau for his career during Barcelona's 7-0 rout vs. Valencia in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals. That tally includes the 16 goals Messi scored during his time with Argentina's U20 and U23 national teams.

Any other day, Luis Suarez's four-goal outburst would be the talk of the match, but Messi deserves special praise for achieving this incredible milestone -- at only 28 years.
