Naturally, fans have been comparing their individual performances with Lineker posting a poll to determine the best.

Over 380,000 people voted as Messi recorded 62% of the votes with Ronaldo garnering 38% of the votes.

Needless to say, fans were going back-and-forth in the comments.

It's a cliche but we should realise how fortunate we are to be able to see them perform week-in and week-out.

Enjoy them while they're around.
