Messi Is Good But He Is No Godfrey Chitalu

Messi Is Good But He Is No Godfrey Chitalu
By Hal LaRoux

The Zambian FA are up in arms over the big hoo-hah over Messi breaking Gerd Muller's goalscoring record, they claim that record belongs to none other than their own Godfrey Chitalu..

"The Football Association of Zambia who explained that they are currently trawling through their archives in order to get the late striker the credit that they feel he deserves.

They said, “We have this record, which has been recorded in Zambian football, but unfortunately it has not been recorded in world football. Even as the world has been looking at Lionel Messi’s record, breaking Gerd Muller’s, the debate and discussion back here has been why Godfrey’s goals are not being recognised. What we are doing is, we have commissioned an independent team locally to go back into the archives and record minute by minute each of those goals. The team that we have put together is going to calculate all of those goals, recording which ever game or tournament they were scored in, we will then send that to CAF and FIFA so that we can show that, while Messi’s record is there, while Muller’s record is there, the actual record holder in terms of goals per calendar year is actually an African, it’s actually Godfrey Chitalu.
