FIFA World Cup this year seems to be more about one particular individual’s battle. Two individuals have been at the center of fans’ cheers.Their clash is being most eagerly awaited this time. The debate on who is the better footballer – Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo is an ever-lasting one.
>p< While it may not be possible to pick either, one thing is certain: Ronaldo has had a better World Cup 2018 than his Argentine counterpart.
The Portuguese has scored on four occasions to help his side to two draws and a win, whereas Messi, barring his goal against Nigeria in the must-win encounter on Tuesday, has cut a sorry figure.
However, all the stats and trivia dwarf in comparison to the thought of these two larger-than-life footballers coming together for a match. While the two have squared off countless times for their respective clubs in the La Liga,
Messi and Ronaldo have not faced each other much at the international level; that is, before now. For their ardent fans, if everything turns out well, Argentina will face Portugal in the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup 2018.>/p<
