dont get me wrong, CR is amazing too, is just a whole different way of looking at the sport as a whole, I guess this would be like comparing a cs 1.6 player with a csgo player you know?
to me its non sense to compare them, both eras are insane, nowdays is way harder to play, CR, messi etc still really amazing...
but to me they are like robots nowdays, back in the days used to have more of a "passion" feel to the game, I dont know how to explain but at least is what I felt watching old br football
and not only br, mothafuckas like zidane etc, same thing!
stars come and go, but that 2002 br team was 100% stacked, every single player of that team was REALLY good, marcos(goalkeeper) was blessed at that event, so this matters too, not only those guys were great, but they also had great teammates to potentialize
cuz imagine CR or messi with a world cup team like that =P
thats what I mean on we cant compare, but br football is great <3
