Ronaldo vs Messi career trophies: 31 with Portugal + 4 clubs vs 34 with Barca by obembet(f): 2:24pm On Jun 10
Ronaldo won 31 trophies with Portugal and 4 different clubs. Messi won 34 with Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo won his second major international title as Portugal edged out the Netherlands 1-0 in the final of the UEFA Nations League at the Estadio do Dragao last night.

The Portuguese talisman has now won two out of the three finals he has played for his national side, winning the 2016 UEFA Euro in France and now the inaugual UEFA Nations League. The only setback Ronaldo has faced in a final for Portugal was back in 2004, when Greece beat them in the 2004 Euro final.

In contrast, Ronaldo’s arch-rival Lionel Messi’s international career with Argentina has never really taken off. Despite carrying Argentina to four finals on the international stage, Messi has failed to deliver for his national side when it mattered the most.

The trohies Messi won with Argentina during the junior world cups not trophies? Why are those often ignored? Because when listing the trophies Kanu won, the Olympics medal is mentioned though it was junior levels. Why ignore that of Messi?

Were those trophies he won then not his effort with a good team around him? With Hugain around Ronaldo in Real Madrid, what noteworthy thing did he win? The w national trophies Ronaldo has won, what really were us jawbreaking contributions aside from being in the team?

Messi has been in 4 finals, if he had the sort of determined team mates Ronaldo has in the national level, he would have been a world cup Winner by now. People always compare him with Maradona, but Maradona had teams mates that steps up to complement his efforts, team mates that delivers at important occasions when needed. The sort of team mate Ronaldo has in the national level.

Any trophies won during Under 23, under 19 or 21 is not a major trophies because you can still claim another country...

Speak of numbers which will be a yardstick to measure this two greats in years to come; Ronaldo has the edge.

Cr7 is also tested and trusted in numerous leagues and competitions unlike Messi who pads up his stats with la liga and Spanish cup.

I know my GOAT
and my GOAT knows me.

'Junior tournaments' are not regarded as major. When you say 'trophies', I'd like to believe that is grossly exaggerated. Messi only won an under tournament before proceeding to playing for the national side.

I mentioned it before and I'll say it again, history will be unkind to Messi. Club legends are forgotten when another rises in their stead. The most important persons to remember him are Argentines and save he wins a national tournament, the only thing he'd be remembered for is that he shares the same number of Ballon d'Or with Ronaldo, possibly UEFA all time goal scorer record with the same.

For someone who has succeeded at three different countries and doing well at the national level, Ronaldo is the perfect model of present day football.

It's very clear the poster is a Ronaldo fan..... Winning a trophy is a team work......You try to Bash Messi for not winning an International award but no matter whatever you think nobody cares.....Why don't you show the Individual awards both players won instead you decide to show trophies forgetting that both players have not even won the Ultimate prize which is the World cup





Managers,Legends footballers any most sport personalities consider Messi as the GOAT......But one juvemadridiot who just came out of his caves consider Ronaldo the Best because of his ego....Ronaldo is a good player no doubt but he wouldn't have been popular without the British media hype

Messi the GOAT.
He is unlucky with his country.
But he is a great player nonetheless.

First and foremost
Trophies is not the ultimate determinant of best players. Some players win trophies by virtue of being in great clubs

List of top 10 players with highest number of trophies include

Dani Alves
Oleksandr Shovkovskiy
Ryan Giggs
Maxwell
Gerard Pique:
Zlatan Ibrahimovic:
Vitor Baia:

All these players have more trophies than Maradona and Pele so can u now say they're greater than Maradona and Pele?

Secondly, CR7 started football BEFORE Messi. And he'll most likely retire before Messi u can imagine how Much trophies Messi will earn 3 years after CR7 retirement.


I've said it severally, CR7 is one of the greatest player ever. While Messi is THE ONE GOAT

Don't get me wrong Messi is a great player.. Absolutely phenomenal.. But I still think for him to be regarded as the greatest he would need to leave his comfort zone (Barcelona) and play football elsewhere and let see he would still be as specular.

Ronaldo has done that not once, not twice, but three times... And he has proven himself in very league he has been in and for that sole reason he is the greatest among the both of them.
No one should quote me
