He has a remarkable 156 Brazilian caps, and has played in four world cup tournaments and three consecutive world cup finals. Often, kids have two or three favorites with regard to players. In 18 games between the clubs at RFK, United is 10-4-4.
There have been multiple rumors in recent months linking Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos with an exit from the Spanish capital. However, the latest reports on Dec. 18, 2012 indicate quite the contrary according to the player.
Benitez has also restructured the club from the ground up. Just look at our reserves and you will find talent from all around the world. He is using Wengers style of nurturing young talent to play football the way he believes it should be played. He has the backing of 99% of the fans. This alone should make the owners realize that they risk a huge backlash by getting rid of Benitez over this petty row.
What is your prediction? Well, I am guessing it really depends on what team you are siding with. Yesterday on 02 April 2008, the score charts saw results like Arsenal 1 – 1 Liverpool and Fenerbahce 0 – 1 Chelsea. What about the top scorers in UEFA champions league 2008? I can tell you now that Cristiano Ronaldo is at the top with 7 goals. Following closely is Lionel Messi from Barcelona. You do not have to find out from the sports news. You can now watch LIVE UEFA Champions League online with your PC.
This weekend, Barca, with a Messi hat-trick, won 3-0 over Atletico Madrid, and Real beat Real Sociedad 4-1 with two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (tying Messi for the championship’s top goal scorer) and one each from Kaka and Adebayor. But with each winning nothing changes.
Centre midfield – 4. Zinedene Zidane. This strong and elegant player represented France on 108 occasions including winning a world cup and a European championship. He scored important goals. Two in the world cup final against Brazil, and a winning goal for Real Madrid in a Champions League final. A player with a short fuse, he was sent off 14 times in his career, but his ability earns his selection for me every time.
But those results have at least been enough to keep United in the race, which is more than can be said for Kansas City, who at 6-10-6 have just 24 points on the season and are nine points behind the 8th and final spot in the playoff race.
And that’s it for this comparison. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi share a lot of qualities; especially the ball technique of both is ground breaking. And while Messi currently has the edge, in my opinion Ronaldo is the more complete footballer in the long haul, not partly thanks to his great charisma both on and off the pitch. However they’re both very young so in the coming years this slight favour can definitely swing both ways.
