Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi Documentary Titled 'The End Is Near' Is A Must Watch

Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi Documentary Titled 'The End Is Near' Is A Must Watch

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Need I say more?

Since arriving on the scene in the mid 00's, the pair have picked up 11 Ballon d'Or's, 10 Champions League's and 12 La Liga title's between them. They have won everything there is to win, consistently smashing record after record, season after season.

They aren't slowing down either. Messi netted 31 goals in 44 games in 2019/20, while Ronaldo continued his incredible goalscoring form for Juventus with 37 goals in all competitions, adding to his overall total of 725 goals in over 1000 games.

But realistically, after more than a decade at the top, these generational talents will likely hang up their boots for good in the not so distant future.

It's a sad truth for those who have followed their journey from day one. From growing up in the Sporting Lisbon and Newell's Old Boys academy system to going up against each other in the Clasico.

Ronaldo and Messi have well and truly stamped their mark on the history of football.

To celebrate their legacy, Youtuber Lorenzo F7 has created a 26 minute documentary titled: The End Is Near.

Sit back, relax and just appreciate how lucky you are to be living in the same era as Ronaldo and Messi.


Despite their dominance at the top, both Ronaldo and Messi have naturally shown signs of slowing down in the past 12 months or so.

Messi missed Barcelona's opening four games of the season because of a foot injury sustained while playing for Argentina in this summer's Copa America.

And he admitted at the start of the season that he is a long way from his best, admitting to being "tired" and "sluggish" after returning from his summer break.

"I didn't have that spark. I was lacking a bit of rhythm." he said via ESPN.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, was absent from a number of games at the start of the season after damaging his adductor, and missed the annual FIFA best awards ceremony after nursing the minor injury.

"Cristiano has a little fatigue to the adductors. I don't want to take any risk." Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri said ahead of the tie.

For his incredibly high standards, Ronaldo made a relatively slow start to his second season in Italy, scoring against Napoli and Hellas Verona in his first five games played.

But he certainly made up for it in the following months.
