So you're telling me, Ronaldo is better than Messi at passing? he doesn't even have the same vision and intelligence as Messi as an attacker, when Messi played as a striker, he played smart, and played passes when he needed to, Ronaldo fails to do that, yes, I clearly don't know the difference between an attacker and an attacking midfielder when one (Messi) does something way better than the other (passing) there's no debate about this, Messi is way better than Ronaldo at passing, and he knows the right timings and perfect lift to the ball, period.
Messi is still on another level, he's the best in the world, if not the best one of the best in the world, if im delusional, you're clearly living under a rock then LMAO, just incase you haven't watched football this whole year (probably did) Messi was the top scorer for the La liga (36 goals) and won his 6th golden boot, the top scorer of the Champions League, where's Ronaldo? he hasn't been impressive this year in terms of stats, Messi has maintained his level for so many years, even till today, but no, clearly im the one here who's delusional lol, what a joke. Argentina have good individual players, have they found the right chemistry like Portugal did? no, they didn't and it still seems like they never will. When I say Messi is on another level, I talk about his individual prowess, his passing, his vision, his timings, they are all beyond what Ronaldo is capable of, Ronaldo can't do half of the shit Messi does, I'd like to see Ronaldo drop in the midfield and do it all, thing is, he can't, yes he's an attacker I didn't forget, but Messi is better than him at scoring goals (this season proves my point) this is what I mean, he can do everything, Ronaldo cant. as for Argentina, he's still trying to get a trophy for Argentina, he's not going to give up, but he won't be able to all by himself, Maradona didn't even score the final, but he scored some goals in the tournament and the national team decided to step up and score goals which happened in the final in 86' but in 2014, they all played badly in the final but the point of the matter is: One player can win you a game, but a team wins tournaments, its not just one player, and when you say legends, you're talking about Zidane,Ronaldinho,Ronaldo, Franz Beckenbauer, all of them had great teammates, what does Messi have? players who dont have the same chemistry as they have for their clubs, and as individuals they're just decent in the national team, no where near their true potential, while Portugal have better players in general, and good chemistry, and they're a very good team, idk who the hell is washed up, trash or retired, that literally makes 0 sense, Patricio, fonte, guerreiro, semedo. carvalho, bruno, bernardo silva, in which category are you possibly going to fit these players in? they're all great seriously.
