          Shut your face. Messi was born with a hormone deficiency and continues to work the hardest to become the greatest player on the pitch. Whereas Ronaldo works way harder in the locker room, making sure he looks pretty enough for the paparazzi.

        CR is better, but he’s a douche. They both make plays by themselves, but CR’s shot is untouchable whereas messi can only chip when xavi or iniesta play him a through ball. He sucks with argentina cause he doesn’t have those two setting him up

        torres was good, until he joined chelsea and had no gerrard to make him look good. In my opinion messi ronaldo xavi and iniesta will be overtaken very soon. The next generation of players are already looking world class, e.g. Neymar, Gotze, Shaqiri and sergio aguero will prove he is one of the best strikers in the world this season.

    Each person that has commented is blinded by how much they love Messi/ Ronaldo. Ronaldo runs way more than messi, he passes the ball and has so many assists, and he is light years faster. Messi is the hardest player in the world to cover and he is just better. Messi would be lucky to have an 80 pace in the game after i saw most of the Americans outrun messi at the meadowlands, his skill is like no other though and he should be the best player in the game (overall rating)

    As far as I’m concerned, Ronaldo is better than Messi. Ronaldo has scored truckloads at every club he has played for throughout his career, he adapts very well and is very versatile. Messi however, has only proved himself at Barcelona; the best club in the world. Unlike Messi, Ronaldo hasn’t had an Iniesta or Xaxi feeding him through untold amounts of inch perfect balls. Until Messi can prove himself in another league or club, we can only assume that Ronaldo is the superior.

    Ronaldo will never be anything near as good as Messi is, and Messi Rightfully deserves his place at the top.

    Ronaldo is only worried about his hair, and doesn’t care about actually trying to be a good soccer player.

    Messi is better then then Ronaldo in every aspect and is the best footballer on the planet.
