  • musawwir niaz

    el sharawi is the best

  • john odu. nigeria

    RONALDO A.K.A. C-BOY. HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST BY MERIT,BUT, MESSI IS JUST BEEN FAVORED BY THE POLITICS FIFA PLAY THIS DAYS. I CAN NEVER RECOGNISE MESSI AS THE WORLD BEST,BECAUSE HE HAS NEVERED WON IT CONVINCINGLY. WHEN,CR7 WAS IN MANCHESTER UNITED, HE WON IT BASE ON MERIT,OK. HE WON THE CHAMPION LEAQUE,EPL,FA-CUP,CARLING CUP AND THE GOLDEN BOOT. BUT NOW WHAT CRITERIA DID FIFA USE TO GIVE MESSI WORLD BEST. WORLD CR7 HAS MORE GOALS THAN MESSIAND MESSI ,COULD NOT EVEN SCORE VINCENT EYEAMA OF NIGERIA A SINGLE GOAL, AND U CALL HIM BEST. MESSI CAN ONLY PLAY IN BARCA WERE U HAVE PLAYERS LIKE INIESTA,XAVI,FABREGAS,THIS ARE WORLD CLASS MID-FIELDERS WHO MAKE IT EASY 4 MESSI TO BE NOTICE. OTHERWISE,MESSI WILL BE A FLOPP. WERE WAS MESSI WHEN BAYERN MUNICH TRASH BARCA 10 GOALS HOME AND AWAY? PLEASE LET US BE FAIR TO CR7.FOR HIS CONSISTENCY. FROM ONE CLUB TO ANOTHER WINING MEDALS. HE WHEN TO LA-LIGA AND WON A GOLDEN BOOT WERE MESSI HAS BEEN AND THE LALIGA. WITH MESSI STILL IN SPAIN. PLEASE CHECK THE ALL ROUND GOALS SCORED BY EACH OF THEM IN THIER CARRIER,THEN U CAN GET BACK TO ME. FIFA PLS ALWAYS BE FAIR AND GIVE PLAYERS THE AWARDS THEY REALLY DISERVE OTHERWISE, ALL FANS WILL GO ON STRIKE AGAINST FIFA. TAKE NOTE.

    • Denny Santimano

      hey dude relax, there is no FIFA or FA, it’s the voting system, there is no indedual decession on this BEST PLAYER, and also not much to do with the goals, it’s the performence round the year. Yes CR did extremly well by scoring 4 crusial goals to his country and also for RM is recured them a very imp time. This year he deserve the award.
      But if you notice the play between these two there is diffrence, CR is not handle pressure and his game goes down but where as Messi can handle pressure and score at the same time, for sure CR can storm and score from a distance but you need sceal, tectics to come in the box and score
      both are good in thier own way

  • ALOMBA SOCRATE

    where are all this money coming from to pay this players with.Those peoples should help AFRICA with it.

  • OLINGA WILLIAMS

    this is just a few words comparing Messi N Cronaldo
    CR is a very good forwarder but not as good as Messi

  • chirstian

    Christiano rolnado remaind the best in the world. He is far far better than messi, no iniesta, fabracas, xivi no messi,

  • marta

    Jordi Alba ,Alexis and Fabregas THE BEST

  • CR

    Whe talking about football to me is all about giving poeple what their eye wish to see out they(picth) and to me they is only one man who can stand out in this,a man who’s every were in a team making sure that all when well with the team a man who heart beat is for his team to win every game,a man who’s lives in any type of country and make success his daily book,a man who’s gives live to every things he does a man who’s cheir and happiness to poeple and make them ask for more a man his touch on a picth bring nothing but moment of wonders to all that sepend their time and money to come and watch him and there will feel like they should never be a stopping time when he is on what he knows what to do best …its pains me most when people waist their energy and time talking about a man that has no comparizan CR and Messi is not to be comparing because at the end he CR remains the only man standing

  • francis forson

  • John Wagner

    If you guys think that Messi is the best football player in the world, then you guys have smoked that green. He is a good scorer, not the player. He doesn’t play like Ronaldo, he just scores. The best player should have all tactics like Ronaldo does. I’m not telling you guys that Messi is an asshole, but when you compare Ronaldo and Messi, Ronaldo is far better than Messi in term of player. Messi is a scorer, Ronaldo is a winger, you can’t compare their goals and just bark here. For example, Bill Gates failed in several classes in College but still became the richest person in the world. So, don’t compare players with the goals they have scored. Compare them with their skills and ability.

  • jameswill

    Hahahahhahahhaah come to it when people are just saying shit about messi, where was cr7 when leo messi won everything just coz messi is sideline some fucking dudes just came out and say shit about messi but don’t forgot that blessing comes from god not by makeing mouth as cr7 and his so fucking fans do, leo messi just cool down let god fight for u as he always do, cr7 keep crying lololololol dudes

  • ITdep

    I think the persond who do not have any know how about foot ball can say CR7 is the best but when we go to reality by his behaviuor and his ability messi is the best best best of all the world’s player.most people who supports CR7 say that if there is no xavi, inesta messi can not score. but it is totally wrong. when messi controls a ball he looks like the creater of the ball. messi is not the only the striker but he is also the defender,the midfielder. any player cannot take a ball from messi. if the player wants to take the ball he must make a foul. I think you Sergio Ramos every time he makes a foul in messi b/c messi cannot give a ball easily to the player of other clubs but when we go to CR7 when one player takes a ball from his leg he always cries to judge. When we speak in reality the ability of CR7 is scoring of a goal far apart. CR7 is a selfish player. he makes everything as an individual game but there are 11 players in one club. when we go to CR7 he wants to play individually in 90 minutes. Tptally we I conculude all the above my ideas CR7 is the father of cry but messi is the father of football, he is the creater of a ball.
