The arguments and debates about the two legendary football stars, Christiano Ronaldo and Leonel Messi is most likely not going to end because both players have proven to be outstanding and unique in their styles of playing football. Both players have won a lot of trophies and sets records that the younger players may find difficult to break.
For decades now, Ronaldo and Messi have been the strongest competitors when it comes to football. In my opinion, there are two major international records of Ronaldo that Messi may never achieve.
1. Most International Goal
Christiano Ronaldo has scored 109 international goals, while Messi has scored 76 goals. The difference is over 24. Ronaldo scored 5 goals in Euro 2020 and currently has the same goal count with Ali Daei. The Portuguese superstar has showed himself as one of the most consistent players.
2. Most International Hat-tricks
Ronaldo has scored 9 hat tricks to his name in international matches and a total of 56 hat tricks. Scoring of hat tricks is one thing that cannot be taken from Ronaldo. Messi has scored just 6 hat tricks on international matches.
No doubt, Messi is a wonderful player but in my own opinion, it is almost impossible for him to meet up with those two records. Feel free to share your opinion in the comment box.
