Who is the best soccer player in the world: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? | The Tylt
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are already legends of the game, and they're still on top of the world. Messi is ranked by many as the top soccer player in the world for his ability to weave in and out of traffic. But Ronaldo might actually be better; his creativity around defenders and the goal is second to none. So who is better? ⚽
Who is the best soccer player in the world: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?
While Ronaldo is at home after being eliminated from the Champions League, Lionel Messi is killing it. It seems time comes for everyone except Messi, who continues to show the world his untouchable skills on the pitch. Here is James Robinson at Dream Team FC:
Some of you reading this will think Ronaldo deserves to go down as the greatest ever. That’s fine. You’re wrong, but that’s fine. For what it’s worth, Messi just edges it in my view because in a game ever more defined by pace and power he’s dominated with a 5ft 7in frame.
Ronaldo might have been eliminated in the Champions League, but that doesn't discount what he is: the best player in the world. It's pretty easy to find space to work when you have Luis Suarez and Coutinho running with you. Ronaldo carries a majority of the load on Juventus and became the first player to win a league title in England, Spain and Italy. Unlike Messi, he also isn't the most recent player to be part of a team that blew a 3-0 aggregate goal lead in the Champions League semifinal.
The Portuguese baller is still the best player in the world!
