The debate between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo GOAT is over? British stars think so


Before Argentina reached the final of the FIFA World Cup 2022, there was not much separation Lionel Messi and cristiano ronaldo. Although Messi (7) has a slight lead ronaldo (5) for the Ballon d’Or title, the latter is still the current top scorer in the world. Both players have won everything life has to offer, except the FIFA World Cup. However, in Qatar, Messi took the final leap in his career when he led Argentina to glory by defeating France in the final. Witnessing Messi’s ‘all-round football’, a debate about the real GOAT in world football has flared up again, with many suggesting that Messi is now clearly ahead of Ronaldo.

Watching Messi finally lift the FIFA World Cup trophy with Argentina, England star Declan Rice took to Twitter calling the Paris Saint-Germain star “the best ever” with GOAT emoticon. In another tweet, Rice said that there will never be a player like Messi in the future.

Rice isn’t the only one who thinks Messi is the best ever. Even former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher ranks Messi at the top of the list of the greatest players of all time.

James Maddisonanother England star, glad the ‘GOAT debate is over.

For his fans, the debate over Lionel Messi’s right to be considered the greatest footballer in history is officially over.

The World Cup champion’s lack of medals has long been an A in the debate over why Messi isn’t ahead of Pele and Pele. Diego Maradona in the pantheon of football.

But with Argentina’s victory over France in the World Cup final on Sunday in Doha, the case against the 35-year-old conductor is certainly closed.
