Portugal Star: You Can't Compare Messi To Ronaldo

Portugal Star: You Can't Compare Lionel Messi To Cristiano Ronaldo

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 19, 2018 06:02 PM @KeeganKruger

After contrasting fortunes in their opening games at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a Portugal star has insisted that one cannot compare Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi: The Penalty Was Painful

The Real Madrid superstar scored an incredible hat-trick in his side's 3-3 draw with Spain last Friday, while Messi failed to convert a penalty and saw his team draw 1-1 with European minnows Iceland.

Leicester City and A Selecao midfielder Adrien Silva, who is yet to make an appearance in a World Cup, believes the two players should not be compared. 

"You can't compare Messi with Ronaldo," he said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"We have a leader, he's with us, and he must do what he must do. He has to help us as best as he can.

"Apart from everything else, he sets a good example for all of us to follow. Not only during the game but with how he behaves and what sort of person he is."

Ronaldo's treble was the 51st in the history of the competition, and it also saw him become only the fourth player to score in four different editions of the tournament.

Do you think Ronaldo is going to outshine Messi in the rest of this World Cup? Have your say in the comments section below.

As for who is much more preferred.....the other one is an awesome player, the other one is an incredible leader. The other one is a ball jiggling master, the other one is a goal-scoring machine. The other one will make you play beautiful and entertaining football, the other one will will make tou win big things out of no where. The other one needs to be in ONE TEAM for him to do his magic, the other one can do his thing at ANY TEAM you put him at. So its one's choice, depending on what he/she prefers. As for Ballon D'or and other voting staff......it just depends on how many ppl valued your contribution that year.....nothing substantial and nothing objective to judge you against. So you can win it even 10 times......fact is, it doesn't make you the best in the world. It just means, you are the MOST PREFERED PLAYER by many. You cannot be the best just because a certain group of people "think" you are. You need to compete in the field and prove your best by producing results and thus LIFTING BEST TROPHIES.

Woow safa yile nonsense ka Ronaldo this Mesdi this. Can you stop this yadda yadda......World Cup is here......let them give us what they have and we see what they are made of. Messi is a ruler of LaLiga......that one cannot be disputed. Ronaldo is the Emperor of EUFA that one is indisputable. Now for us to see who is the King of Kings in the world.....let one wins the WORLD CUP whilst carryong his team in his shoulders. It is simple as that. You cannot be the best in the world, yet you haven't touched that famous W. CUP

While Ronaldo coaches or points the recipient of a pass in a match, Messi expect the pass even when not in a good position to initiate attack. Ronaldo has football intelligence and the mentality of a winner. Messi has the talent and rhythm which can be studied and nullified.

@Master25 The guy is simply praising him captain and leadership ability to carry the team.no comparison to messy was made so take a chill pill,it's still early messy is still going to produce some magic of his own,while we wait for that to happen, let us appreciate what we've seen so far

Can somebody show me anything interesting that Ronaldo did in the last three world cups he played in. 4k man, just becuse he scored a hatrik in his fourth world cup he's now Mr world cup? Who's trying to fool who here? Ronaldo is not any better than Messi when it comes to world cup. He did nothing in 3 world cups. Correct me if you remember Ronaldo in a world cup final.
