When did Messi learn football?

Messi started learning football at the age of five when he joined his father’s coaching club, Grandoli. His skills soon caught the eye of bigger clubs and he left for Barcelona at just 15 years old.

He went on to win countless honours with Barcelona, including four La Liga titles, two Champions Leagues and a World Cup title in 2014. Messi has also competed in numerous other international tournaments – most notably the Copa America held every two years since 1916 and Euro 2016 won by Spain this year.

With such an illustrious career behind him, it is difficult to know where to start listing all his achievements…

Who is No 1 football player in the world?

Cristiano Ronaldo is the No 1 football player in the world and he has shown this season why he is considered one of the best players in history. His career numbers are astounding, with 379 goals in 538 games for club and country combined.

He is only the second male player to break into the international top 100, after Pelé, and his Ballon d’Or tally of five equals that of Lionel Messi’s four awards. Ronaldo as he nears Sir Bobby Charlton’s record for most goals scored by an individual in a single calendar year – scoring 41 goals so far this season alone.

With another three trophies left to win this season (including potentially being crowned world champions), there is no doubting who is currently No 1 on the footballing world stage.

Who is faster Messi or Ronaldo?

Messi and Ronaldo are both world-class athletes, but who is faster? It’s not easy to compare their speeds because of the different playing styles they use.

Messi takes shorter strides than Ronaldo, which gives him an advantage on short speed runs. On top speed runs, Ronaldo wins decisively over his Argentine rival.

These two football superstars have set new records time and again – it’ll be hard to beat them.

Who has more trophies Messi or Ronaldo?

Cristiano Ronaldo has won more trophies than Lionel Messi in their careers. Both players have represented their countries and clubs to the best of their abilities, but Ronaldo’s trophy haul is slightly greater than Messi’s.

Messi was once considered the better player compared to Ronaldo, but now it is arguable that the Portuguese superstar reigns supreme over his Argentine rival. With 33 major trophies under his belt, CR7 easily edges past Leo with 36 major titles across all competitions – including La Liga, Copa Del Rey, Champions League and Fifa World Cup campaigns.

Statistically speaking, Cristiano Ronaldo has had a longer illustrious career than Lionel Messi thus far

What if Messi won the World Cup?

If the Argentine superstar Messi had won the World Cup in 2018, he would have retired for good and many of his colleagues such as Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria etc would have retired following in their captain’s footsteps.

This change could lead to a new generation taking over for some big names in world football and pave the way for younger players to develop. Winning a trophy at this stage of his career is all that Messi needs to secure his place among history’s greatest ever soccer players – even if he does retire afterwards.

As we head into the final stages of competition there’s no telling who might be lifting silverware on July 15th…but it sure will be something special if it is Leo Messi. The magnitude of an event like this cannot be understated- regardless of whether or not Lionel Messi lifts up the World Cup Trophy on Sunday night
