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.

    Messi will get the ball 30 meters out beat several defenders and score. He does this over and over. Ronaldo is just a finisher and who gets on the end of things his team create.

      There have been countless cases when Cristiano has dribbled past 5-6 men.
      Cristiano has done what Messi normally does. But can Messi shoot from midfield or can be score headers?? Nope. Cristiano Ronaldo is best of all time
