Fan Tries To Prove Lionel Messi Is Better Than Cristiano Ronaldo In International Football

One thing that is often argued puts Lionel Messi behind rival Cristiano Ronaldo is his lack of success on the international stage, but one fan has argued the Barcelona man is actually better than his rival in that sphere too.

Some even believe the lack of international trophies, especially with no World Cup winners medal, makes the Argentina forward lacking behind his rivals when it comes to the debate about the greatest ever.

Ronaldo's success at Euro 2016, coupled with multiple final failures for Argentina and Messi at the World Cup and Copa Americas, means it's a real stick to beat Messi with.

However one fan has claimed it's not that simple, and put together a thread of why the Barca legend is better than his rival when it comes to international football.

Messi's final heartache saw Argentina lose 1-0 in extra time to Germany in the World Cup back in 2014 but he's come even closer in South America's continental competition.

In both 2015 and 2016 he was in the team as Chile beat Argentina on penalties twice. Barcelona's all time top scorer converted his spot kick in the 2015 final but missed in 2016.

Messi also lost in the 3-0 final defeat to rivals Brazil in the 2007 final and time is running out for his luck to change in international finals.
