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.
