1 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Lionel Messi is absolutely better than Cristiano Ronaldo. He scored more goals than Ronaldo, his passes are more accurate than Ronaldo, he always leads his team and won nearly every match he played. Sometimes, he has chance to score but he passes the ball to his teammate. He also lets his teammate to have the penalty when his teammate doesn't score in that match. He is by far the best footballer in history. I respect Cristiano Ronaldo, but I have to say Lionel Messi is better. - RichardSSG

Who cares if Ronaldo is good Messi is better lie they say, to cover Ronaldo you check his right foot but for Messi you pray to god

Messi is a great soccer player I think he is the best in the world
