Messi is regarded as one of the greatest footballer in the world, if not the greatest by football pundits while Ronaldo is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world.

Always be calming down, if there's any phrase like that. Don't just rush and comment what you know nothing about, especially anything that petains to soccer. Messi is touted as one of the greatest, if not the greatest in football history. You can't say such for Ronaldo. The highest rating he can get is; one of the best striker in football. By calling you a Dundee in football, I meant you lacked the requisite knowledge to analyse the game and not an insult like you thought.
Messi is one of the greatest and Cristiano Ronaldo is not? shocked shocked shocked shocked shocked

Common!!! What kind of a biased Messi fan are you?

I never debated about Messi's greatness but only about his order in the greatness scheme of things(behind Ronaldo)

Portugal is consecutive champions of all the available European trophies(Nations league and the Euros), for the first time in their history.....sleep over this fact, i can assure you that it is absolutely important

Dude when it comes to football i have been an analyst even before you developed any interest in football.

I'm very sure Messi had since hit the Billion mark. It's just that Forbes just completed their calculations.

Money wey too long and complicated.

Messi-less assassin. Send Barca on relegation with enough own goals abeg before you stroll leave them at the end of the season.

I wish...


Why didn't u complete ur own calculation since so that u cud publish it before Forbes?

Olympic medal and Junior world cup? Your greatest ever player has junior team trophies to show for his Argentina career? interesting!!!

Zidane, Pele, Ronaldo de Lima, Mitchel platini, Cristiano Ronaldo will be laughing their ass out.

Before Messi Argentina were already world champions, before Messi Argentina were already Copa America champions..he was supposed to simply add to the list of winners(failed so far).

Ronaldo had no previous winners inspiration to fall back on for Portugal; he decided to be the inspiration.....Messi had better players at Argentina to work with yet nothing tongue

With all his talent!!!(spits)

What stopped Ronaldo from competing in Olympic and Junior world cup? Are These tournaments no longer reputable sport and football tourneys? Pele singlehandedly won all the 3 world cups for Brazil. Maradona also did the same for Argentina but you can't say the same for Ronaldo during the Euro nations cup Portugal won. He wasnt in any way instrumental, in fact we all knew how he was on the sideline doing eye service while a portuguese of African descent gave them the glory.

i watched the entire competition for your information....if you need highlights just send me your email address i promise to send you videos....your statement above proves to me that you did not watch that competition(it's rather unfortunate)...you clearly displayed your ignorance.... YouTube is also available for highlights of Portugal's road to the final....you might cure that ignorance

You failed to answer my question. Was Ronaldo not a spectator in the finals? Who gave Portugal the glory?

Please these are questions begging for answers.

Ok. These National trophies are team titles and not won individually. Yes, an individual can be very instrumental to his team winning that title but he also needs a major chunk of support from his teammates cus he can be that instrumental and yet his team can still lose that title....he can play his best and yet his teammates might not step or luck may not be on the side of his team.
Pedro has won almost anything there is to win in football(team level), does that make him better than CR7? Not all. IMO Messi is better than Ronaldo because I watched the both play and while one is a great goalscorer, slightly above par dribbler and really hardworking, the other is also just as great a goalscorer as the latter, a master playmaker, as in if how can someone be so good as a midfielder and a striker too, a great passer of the ball even EA had to recognize that check FIFA21 stats Messi still has the highest short and long pass accuracy, don't even get me started on his dribbling..simply phenomenal. Just my opinion tho

When you downplayed messi for winning a tournament that had previously been won by Argentina you didn't realise you'll "Finally put in Pidgin English" abi?

Now let me put it more succinctly, E no be by how far, na how well. History only remembers the African man has the man who gave Portugal the glory.
