    Both are good but they have not had the impact in WC's that they do at the club level. I dont remember a single great game from either in WC's like we saw with Maradona, Pele, Zidane etc.

    Difficult 1 to call. Neither team is expected to get deep into the tournament. And as mentioned above neither have performed amazingly in international tournaments.

    CR7 will play close to goal and probably as a number 9. Everything goes through Messi when Argentina play. I'll go with Messi .

    I won't be supporting Argentina,but I suppose Messi is more likely to have a better WC,since he has better teammates.He can also drop deep and do well there.Ronaldo can't do that anymore.

    CR7 has already set a very high benchmark for Messi.

    Messi will have to play his heart out to achieve what Ronaldo has achieved today..

    Because everytime I see Messi playing, it gives a strange feeling (basically considering the fact that he is also a world-class player) of that he isn't capable of handling pressure.

    SOCHI (Reuters) - Spain defender Gerard Pique accused Cristiano Ronaldo of diving to win a penalty and a crucial free-kick in Friday’s epic 3-3 draw with Portugal and praised his side for battling back after a chaotic week in which coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked.

    Ronaldo struck the first goal of his memorable hat-trick to put Portugal ahead in the fourth minute after going down in the area from a challenge from Nacho. He later converted an exquisite late free-kick to level the thrilling encounter after winning a foul following a tussle with Barcelona’s Pique.

    “Cristiano is very prone to diving and they award him almost every foul,” Pique told reporters after the extraordinary spectacle in Sochi between the two heavyweights which set the World Cup alight.

    “We picked ourselves up again after a lot of problems because starting a World Cup by conceding a penalty in the second minute and going behind is difficult but we scored three goals and we have to be happy with how the game went.”

    Spain’s ability to come back in the game after Ronaldo’s first two goals was all the more impressive given the turmoil that had gripped the team after Lopetegui was sacked on Wednesday for negotiating a move to Real Madrid behind the back of Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales.

    Pique, who is famous for his open disliking for Barca’s arch-rivals Madrid, said now was not the time to analyse whether it was right or wrong to dismiss Lopetegui but hinted he disagreed with his former coach’s methods in the negotiations.

    “We all have to pull together now, it’s a situation that no-one has enjoyed but the World Cup has started, and when it’s over that’s when we can tell the story, we need to speak as little as possible and focus on football,” Pique said.

    “The fact he negotiated with Madrid doesn’t bother me, a huge club came for him, the way he did it is up for debate. There are thousands of opinions, the president didn’t like it and took his decision and the players have accepted it.”

    Spain striker Diego Costa produced an explosive performance and pledged to “keep working and keep on shutting people up” after his two goals answered critics who believe he does not fit into the team’s style of play.

    The Atletico Madrid forward also declared his admiration for Ronaldo after the Portuguese upstaged his two goals with his whirlwind hat-trick.

    “There will always be a debate, that’s good as it means there is competition in the team,” Costa said.

    “I have to congratulate Cristiano, they criticise him and just look at what he does. People would be better off leaving him alone. I wish I was like him.”

    Never been a Real fan, but these Barca players (& their Messi worshipers) are making it difficult by every day to be a Barca fan.

    Can't compare Messi and Ronaldo', says Silva

    Kratovo - Portugal's Adrien Silva refused to be drawn on comparisons between teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina's Lionel Messi after wildly contrasting fortunes for the global stars in their opening games at the World Cup.

    Ronaldo rescued Portugal with a hat-trick in a thrilling 3-3 draw with title contenders Spain, while Messi missed a penalty as Argentina were held 1-1 by tournament newcomers Iceland.

    "You can't compare Messi with Ronaldo," Leicester City midfielder Silva said Sunday. "We have a leader, he's with us and he must do what he must do. He has to help us as best as he can."

    "The result was positive," Silva added. "It wasn't the one that we expected though, but still we tried not to lose the game. That's what was most important for us.



    "We did our best at every moment. Spain tried to change the course of the game but we resisted well so we feel good about it."

    Ronaldo's treble was the 51st in World Cup history and saw him become just the fourth player to score at four different editions of the tournament.

    It was a clear sign of intent from a player who is dreaming of adding a World Cup winner's medal to his vast collection of honours with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Portugal.

    Portugal reached the semi-finals in 2006, the closest Ronaldo has come to the title, although the finals in Russia are likely the 33-year-old's last chance at World Cup glory.

    "It would be more difficult without him but he's on our side and we hope he continues to be with us, so why speculate on something like that?" Silva said.

    "Apart from everything else he sets a good example for all of us to follow. Not only during the game but with how he behaves and what sort of person he is."

    Im not sure if it will be ronaldos last wc, he might still be playing in 4 years time considering how fit he is.


    But this time around it looks like he will play his heart out to have a big impact.
