    Very well written article. I personally think it’ll come down to statistics, namely goals per game. Sure, while Ronaldo has Messi on goals, he’s been playing for a full two years longer. Looking at goals per game, Messi clearly has Ronaldo beaten, and if you tack on assists the separation grows wider in Messi’s favor. Still, it could certainly be argued that many of Ronaldo’s goals have come in more key scenarios for club and country, such as in the later stages of tournaments. It’s so difficult to compare two players of such caliber with such different playing styles. I think that Ronaldo will come to be known as the best goalscorer and most clutch player of all time, while Messi will be seen as the most well-rounded and technically gifted. As for now, let’s just sit back and enjoy what they have to offer.
