Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has dominated football for the past 10 years and won all there’s to win in the game. They’ve broken records set by legends for both club and country and set records that take decades to be broken.
Those two have won over 201 individual awards, 51 club trophies, 5 international trophy and 23 Guinness World Records. This phemeonal stats is the reason why everyone strongly believes Messi and Ronaldo are the greastest of all time which is very wrong.
That accolade is reserved for Brazil’s greatest player Pele cause he is the first and only man in history to have won 3 World Cups.
Winning the World Cup is so difficult that the even the nation that founded the game ‘England’ have managed to win the World Cup just once in their history in 1966.
USA have never won it and don’t look like winning it in the next 20 years. In fact, no country from Africa, Asia or the Oceanic have managed to win it. Even Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have both failed to win it and only once in 15 years have one of them managed to reach World Cup final and yet lost to Germany.
Pele meanwhile reached three finals and won it three times with Brazil. This is why he is the greatest of all time cause he did what nations couldn’t do three times.
