Portugal’s triumph triggers Ronaldo, Messi comparison

Twitterati last night began a comparison between Cristiano Ronaldo and his great rival Lionel Messi, on who is the better GOAT(Greatest Of All Times), after Portugal won the maiden UEFA Nations League trophy.

Although Ronaldo, who captained Portugal, did not score in the finals against Netherlands, Twitterati felt he is more accomplished than Messi, winning 31 career trophies, two of them with his country and 14 different trophies with four clubs

Messi, so far has no national trophy to show, although he has won 34, all with Barcelona.

Here are some of the Twitter threads on the two players:

Finals reached: 0 .

Portugal never won a trophy without Ronaldo.
Argentina never won a trophy with Messi.

And this from ESPN FC:

How many trophies have you won with Portugal, @Cristiano? pic.twitter.com/73nemTuE2r

Messi once again proved he is the best DOMESTIC PLAYER. He became the top goalscorer of La Liga. Won La Liga. Nothing outside of Spain.

Ronaldo went from Spain to Italy. Won 2 trophies with Juventus, being the top scorrer and assister. And won 2nd trophy with Portugal.
