Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best thing to have happened to soccer without any question. No one doubts the skills of both players, although the question “who is better” always arises.
Whilst both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have never won the world cup with their countries, their achievements at club level has been unbelievable. These two are like goal scoring machines with Messi having recently scored his 400th goal recently and Ronaldo getting his 22nd hat-trick as well.
One is left wondering what would have happened if both players were to be in the same team of if both players where from the same country. Well, thanks goodness that its not the case and the fact that they play for the biggest rival in Spain makes their contest more interesting.
Lionel Messi was recently asked if he is better that Cristiano Ronaldo and he responded by saying that he does not compete with Cristiano at all. Messi also said he just plays his game and does his duty. He also added that he is not interested in competing with anybody else and that individual awards are less important to him.
As much as the players will publicly state that they are not interested in competing with one another, the debate of who is better between the two of them will never stop. Let the race continue!
