Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Superstars like Ronaldo and Messi have become household names across the globe. Gareth Bale has helped put Wales national soccer team on the map. But who is the best of the best? The stars on this list shine brighter than the rest. They have risen to the highest highs of professional soccer and deserve to be recognized as the best ocean-to-ocean. You won’t believe how many players from Bayern Munich make the list!
Christiano Ronaldo Is Better Than Lionel Messi
Let’s end the Lionel Messi versus Christiano Ronaldo debate right now. Ronaldo is currently the best soccer player in the world. He was good when it mattered in the World Cup. Messi, on the other hand, disappeared in the big moments and missed a decisive penalty kick.
Being Ronaldo wasn’t enough for Portugal, though. His country lost in the quarterfinal to Belgium. Argentina barely made it out of the group stage, then lost in the first knockout round. Ronaldo might not have a trophy, but we’d say he still has bragging rights.
