Finals played by Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in national teams

Regarding the national teams, neither of them has had excessive fortune. Messi was only able to win one of four finals (Olympic gold medal in Beijing against Nigeria), while Cristiano lost the only final he played at home, Euro 2014 Portugal, against Greece, while he won Euro 2016. Neither of them has scored in finals with national teams*

  • In this chart, as in the rest of the web, we do not consider the FIFA U-20 World Cup won by Leo Messi, whose final he scored two goals, considering it a lower level title. We do consider, however, the Olympic gold medal, disputed with U-23 players, because we believe that the Olympics are a world-class competition, and of extraordinary importance.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is my favorite footballer and will forever be to me the greatest footballer of all time. I enjoyed watching him play for Real Madrid when they carried UEFA Champions League three times in a row. I hope he also carries the UEFA Champions League with his current team “Juventus” before he retires. I blog often and truly appreciate your content. The article has really gotten my interest.

    The question of who is better between the Portuguese phenomenon and the empyrean Argentine has dominated the minds of football fans everywhere for the past decade and will persist into the future. Club and national loyalties can cloud judgement on the matter, while personalities also play a part in how good a player is perceived to be, and most people know who they’d pick.
