Cristiano is breaking records on the World Cup. What about Leo Messi?
Last night we watched a big game! Because of such football battles we are waiting four years for the World Cup! What Cristiano Ronaldo! Once again, the Portuguese poured water into the mill of those who claim that, unlike Lionel Messi, he plays not only for his club team.
It should also open bracket and say that Cristiano was №1 not just a club - first won everything with Manchester United and then conquer the world with Real Madrid. And while Ronaldo is on his back Portugal at a major championship, his age-old competitor in Argentina is different.
If you look at Messi's goals with the national team, you will see that most of them are in friendly matches and world qualifications. Nothing bad, but none of those 64 hits Leo for "albiseleste" which holds the record for his country, does not weigh as each goal by Diego Maradona Meksiko'86. Just yet Messi has done nothing phenomenally outside Barcelona.
Back: Cristiano first conquer "Old Trafford", then sat on the throne of the "Bernabeu" and two years ago brought Portugal to its football Everest - the European title in Paris. As it is, at the end of the year CR7 will kiss for the sixth time the Golden Ball, which will also overtake its Argentine rival.
Of course, this can change. Leo has seven games in front of him, after which he has stepped onto the world's top. Where Maradona was 32 years ago.
