So the big debate in this era of football is, who is a better football player Lionel Messi, Barcelona and Argentina's magician, or Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid and Portugal's high fly-er. 


Lionel Andres Messi, the 25 year old is going to be Barcelona and a footballing legend! The reason why most people think he is a better footballer than Ronaldo is because of his goal record compared to Ronaldo, and the rest of the world. Also he has players like Iniesta, Xavi and David Villa to name a few. His technique is nothing to mess with. It is immaculate every touch of the ball is exactly where it should be. Every touch is correct, every decision is amazing. If you could fit a football through a needle, and the needle was 100m away Messi would be able to slide the ball through it. He is technical brilliance. 


Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro, the 27 year old will also go down in football history. Ronaldo is much more of a versatile player than Messi. Ronaldo has the strength to out muscle players, he can play anywhere in midfield or up front if needed. If there was an open goal and Ronaldo was 40 yards out he would shot. He is a big powerful player who is an extrovert. He would hit a 60 yard-pass when needed, which could get in Benzema, Marcelo or Ozil. Ronaldo sees football differently to others, he sees every pass on the field, where the goal is, and how he can get passed everyone. 


The difference between Crisitano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is that Messi is a Barcelona player and Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player. I know that may not mean much to you all. Messi has amazing technical ability. He slides cute passes through to players in the blue and red, scores neat goals and doesn't get his name in the papers for any other reason but football. Whereas Ronaldo is much more flashy player. He wants to show off, he wants everyone to be speaking about him and watching him. He will try and blast a ball from anywhere on the pitch to get a goal.


I think that Messi is the best player in the world at the moment, but Ronaldo is close, closer than most people think. Messi is more of a tidy football player but Ronaldo gibes you moments you will remember. 

I would like to know who you think is better between the two or if you think someone else is better just leave a comment thank you.
