Ever since his hattrick against Sweden in the 2nd leg of the World Cup qualifiers, Cristiano Ronaldo has been getting praises from all around. He has single handedly led his country, Portugal into the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil with 4 goals in over two legs. This makes him a stronger contender for the Ballon d’Or award for which he will compete (again) with rival Lionel Messi.
Although this time, Argentine and Barcelona forward had some kind words for his rival. Speaking to Spanish newspaper, Messi said, “He (Ronaldo) is always there scoring goals in all the games and taking part in his club and national side. He has been doing that for many years and whether he is at his peak or a bit below it makes no difference.”
The ‘Messi-Ronaldo’ rivalry is regarded as one of the best as the two are widely regarded as the best players in the world.
