lol i liked your comment, u atleast know what ur talking about (looks like).
I never said he was "greater" than Messi or Cristiano. Their careers and achievements speaks for themselves. I'm not ronaldinho fanboy to begin with. I think he's overrated in general, people often getting him into top 10 or GOAT conversations and that's absolute bs. But i can recognize he was one of the greatest ever at his peak, and i would pick prime ronaldinho anyday ove prime CR7. He was rekting defenses with such a beautiful game that no other player i've ever seen come close, his style and creativity where on another level. Remember he was more of a streetstyle playmaker then a scorer midfield, he wasn't expected to score 50 goals a season anyway, he was expected to win and make his team the best while entertaining fans, and boy he did that, right? Won everything possible for a player (WC,UCL,National Leagues,Libertadores,Ballon D'or, etc.). He dominated matches just with his technique and vision, even way past his prime he was a consistent threat to defenses. In his golden years tho, he was pure magic, fans from teams all over the world would enjoy watch him play.
About that England match in 2002, he actually made an great play and assist for the equalizer, then scored a magic fk to take the lead 2-1, then got wrongly ejected (imo) from the game. He was performing decently during that WC and when his team needed the most he had his best game. Remember that in 2002 he was not that big name yet, he was a very hot prospect but Rivaldo and Ronaldo where the big names on that team, he wasn't expected to carry the team like he was in 06, where only Kaka was focused and him and that entire clownfiesta team (Adriano, Ronaldo, Robinho, RC) flopped hard due to lack of commitment. We all wonder what Ronaldinho would've been if he had the commitment, but there's no doubt he was one of the most talented players ever.
