FIFA announced via their website that fans will be given the opportunity to vote for the best goal of the 2018 World Cup, an award that two of the best players in world football are competing for, among others such as France's Benjamin Pavard and Spain's Nacho Fernandez. 

Messi earned himself a nomination for his sublime strike against Nigeria in the group stage, after his run into the box was picked out by midfielder Ever Banega.

Take a look at Messi's goal:

Ronaldo is also a candidate for the award for his free-kick goal against Spain in Portugal's opening match of the competition. Not only did his late strike earn a point for his country, it also rounded off an incredible hat-trick for the player.

CR7's goal was exceptional since it was almost 90min and it was also a hatric against Spain

Good goals, but neither CR7's, nor KING LM10's goals were exceptional by their own standards.

Nothing special about Ronaldo's goal. There are a lot of players who scored a similar goal during the world cup. Messi's goal is world class and he will win it liking or not. Those who understand football will agree with me

Anyone who knows football will tell you how brilliant Messi's goal was, the first the 2nd touch and last touch were all brilliant. The best Ronaldo can get out of a pass like that is a first good touch. The only reason people think Messi's goal doesn't deserve a nomination is because he made it all look so easy, but making things look easy is his talent.
