Lionel Messi’s 5 international records Cristiano Ronaldo is struggling to break

- Advertisement -


Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have suffocated for both international and club records in a decade and a half. The perpetrators used the fact that Messi did not have a major prize on the international stage as a reason not to give him GOAT status.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo won the Golden Boot at the Copa America 2021 and Euro 2020

But Lionel Messi put an end to that by winning the Copa America 2021 with Argentina. He was easily the best player of the tournament. In the recently concluded continental tournament, he won the Golden Boot (best scorer) and the Golden Ball (best player).

His arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo won the Golden Boot at Euro 2020 despite Portugal winning the 16th round.

Messi had previously reached the Copa America final three times, but lost in all of them. He also led Argentina to the 2014 World Cup final, but in the final they were relegated to Germany. The Barcelona player has also broken some great individual records along the way.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at Lionel Messi’s five international records as he struggles to break Cristiano Ronaldo.


# 5 The only player to score at least one goal in 4 different World Cup tournaments
