    That world cup golden ball was cheated for messi, after fifa came out and say it was a mistake and Nuer should’ve been the winner. Ronaldo is the proven best, he’s the most complete footballer and prolific goal scorer, one who does so when it counts the most, important in dire situations. Simply the God of football

    A player like Cr7 spending his whole time infront waiting to score is still not ashamed comparing himself to Messi who is all over the field helping his team mates ….Cr7 fans r just football illiterates

  8. Scrollz 23 de November de 2017 / 18:49

    Messi is a Legend ….that is why all the Legends Pele and the rest prefer him to Cr7

  9. A Messi Fan 24 de November de 2017 / 15:22

    Cr7 fans always scream like him. They do so because they are aware that GOD (Messi) cannot be compared with a human (Ronaldo). Stop screaming as we all know what Messi can do.
    Eg: 1) 0 to 32 kmph in 2.7s.
    2) The world famous dribbling 6 players including Goalkeeper and then scoring.
