If you are still wondering between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Robaldo who is the greatest player on the planet, all you have to do is look at both players first match in World Cup 2018. Portugal tied 3-3 with Spain and Argentina tied 1-1 with Iceland. The way the teams tied their games prove why Ronaldo is the greatest player while Messi is, well, just great.
Ronaldo scored a hat trick which includes a penalty and a free kick to carry his team on his shoulder to comeback from being down 2-3 to tie the game 3-3. For Messi, he missed a penalty and multiple free kicks, forcing his team to setlle for the 1-1 tie.
If Ronaldo had missed his penalty and free kick, Portugal would have lost. If Messi had made his penalty or one of his free kicks, Argentina would have won. A tie is a tie butome ties are bigger than others. Messi has to thank his teammates (Aguero) for their tie. Ronald teammates have to thank Ronald for their tie. That is the difference between a great player and the greatest player.
Cristiano Ronaldo is without a doubt, the greatest player on earth.
