Messi vs. Cristiano: Is the discussion about who is the best player in the world over?

Lionel Messi Y Cristiano Ronaldo They are two of the most decisive players of recent years. Both made football history and, without a doubt, are among the best of all time. However, the press and the fans were in charge of creating a rivalry between the two, which became iconic in the king of sports, especially when both played in two of the best teams in the world at the time: FC Barcelona on the Argentine side and Real Madrid by the Portuguese.

In recent years, this “confrontation” has been losing ground, especially when the “Bug” left the White House. Despite this, many fans expected a closure to this, and the ideal setting would have been Qatar. However, Portugal was eliminated in the quarterfinals against Morocco and with a Cristiano who could do little or nothing to qualify for his country.

This, added to the fact that Messi managed to win the World Cup, raises a question: is the discussion about who is the best between the two finally over?

Definitely yes. ‘Leo’ managed to enter the history of the World Cups after consecrating himself in Qatar and placed himself alongside the great figures of the sport, such as Pelé, Maradona, Zidane, among others, something that Cristiano could never achieve. Therefore, the triumph in the face of doubt about who of the two is the best ends up taking the Argentine striker.
