The then Porto goalkeeper said this when he received a bottle of Budweiser- advertisement has caused much traffic on social networks- on an event started by the brewery on Messi’s 644th goal.

The personalized beers were given to all the goalkeepers the Argentine has scored against up to record-breaking goal, but the Spaniard said Messi did not find the back of the net in the last three El Classico outings.

The World Cup winner thanked Messi for the gift and in a humorous tone, he remembered how he has faced so much consternation from the Argentine, posting the narration on his Twitter.

“I already thought they weren’t there!  But here is my personalized Budweiser bottle , congratulations Messi for your record with goal 644. I remember when you scored your goals 264 and 265 …” he tweeted

“Good game, good draw and the best, what You never marked me again! “, he said sarcastically.

October 2012 was the time when Messi last scored Casillas in the league- that was between Real Madrid and Barcelona, 2-2 it went on the encounter, each brace courtesy of Messi and Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.

But Messi did not score against Iker Casillas after the crucial game despite facing him two times each in both 2014 and 2015.

But Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique pulled up irony for Casillas in response to Messi’s gesture on Instagram.

“Iker, I guess you don’t fit all the bottles at home … Send me some of that,” he responded to Casillas

“You have too much free time! Between Youtubers, the soccer team, and the statements you make … You will have to recover, right? Cardura!”, He said
