Though Ronaldo has had more success as of late, many still believe Messi is the best footballer in the world. PERIOD. 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.

But Ronaldo did lead his team to a Champions League title. That's Real Madrid's third straight Champions League title. He's also killing it at an international level, notching three goals against Spain in his first game of the World Cup. There is no better player than Ronaldo.
