Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo - Last Chance To Win The World Cup?

Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo In The World Cup 2018


Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the faces of football today and arguably greatest of all time, will be in Russia this summer to compete for the biggest honor of them all. Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo at 33 and Argentinian captain Lionel Messi at 30 have dozens of honors at club level but haven’t been able to win the World Cup 2018, after the pair has appeared in each of the last four tournaments.

Cristiano Ronaldo helped Portugal win Euro 2016 but Lionel Messi has yet to enjoy a major success with Argentina. Lionel Messi has lost two consecutive Copa America finals and even went on to retire from international football, but eventually came back when his country was on the brink of not qualifying, and bagged a hat-trick to make sure they did.

The reason for the pair’s lack of success on the biggest stage is largely down to their teammates. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo can be playing at the peak of their abilities and still be let down by the rest of the team. Football isn’t a sport where one individual can take a group of average players to a final, unlike in basketball as seen with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Both Argentina and Portugal go to Russia hardly as favorites, peering in to see if one of the favorites slip-up, a favorable draw or really any sign that this could yet be their year. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will perform well, as it is in their very nature, but for either one’s team to win the World Cup, the rest of the team will have to step up and be counted as well. As captains, it is up to them to motivate their peers and get the best out of them.
