Messi jumps back to top AP soccer rankings

  •  

LONDON (AP) - Lionel Messi has returned to the top of the AP Global 10 soccer rankings by breaking Pele's 54-year-old goal-scoring record with his 76th tally, while Bayern Munich's stunning form propelled the German club to the top of the team list.

In The Associated Press' weekly rankings, Messi finished far ahead of his closest rival, Mexican striker Javier Hernandez, who was in goal-scoring form for Manchester United over the past week.

Germany's Gerd Muller set the all-time calendar-year record of 85 goals in 1982.
