Whos better, why? Ronaldo here.
I agree, Ronaldo is better. He's a better dribbler, a better free kick taker, a better crosser/passer, and a better goalscorer, and has more power, better accuracy, and more ball control.
No wonder FIFA named him World Player of the Year and he won the Ballon d'Or (both awarded this year).
Messi is better. Faster at dribbling, scores more, and a team player. None one is at his level this year, especially when Messi has 32 goals in all competitions and he's the Champions League leading scorer. Ronaldo has the trophies but Messi is better this year and if not now then later thsi year and he will win the Ballon D'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year 2009.
@buffman: One man team? Have you heard of Xavi, Eto'o, Henry, Puyol, Iniesta, and Dani Alves?
Messi Is better his a one men Team If he doesnt play Barcaelona doesnt do that good but jhe really makes a diffrent I say in a couple of years he could become better then Maradona
I think Lionel Messi is the best because he is the best scorer and as well as he is a very fast footballer.
MESSI IS BETTER
messi by miles
