Kai Kei says:

Messi and Ronaldo are good but without a good team to support them, then that just makes them useless. Just saying.

messi the best player ever

Deklan T Smith says:

Its always lie that, Egypt gets carried by Salah, Poland gets carried by Lewandowski, Portugal gets carried by Ronaldo, Costa Rica by Navas, and Argentina by Messi, Di Maria and Aguero

Football Legends says:

They were eliminated at the same day

Nana Akwesi Atta Mensah says:

Because their teammates don't have the same values as them, because they rely too much on these two. They're both good leaders in their own way. Messi is charismatic and inspires by his gameplay, Ronaldo is the leader that gives the motivational speech. It's their teammates that let them down. I don't know if I'm being biased but I think Messi's Argentine teammates let him down more than Ronaldo's Portuguese teammates. Portugal without Ronnie beats France 1-0. Argentina without Messi lose 6-1 to Spain.

Extreme Games says:

This explains nothing bad World Cup for Messi. Still have 1 last chance in 2022

Extreme Games says:

1:53 why are the Barcelona players smiling?

Seba Corsair says:

In the case of Argentina poor management from the coach all the way to the president of the federation. Portugal's case would be their streaks are more volatile.

Shresth Raj says:

Now 2022?
Messi & Ronaldo

The Master Strikers says:

World cup ? I hate world cup why ? Because the best players need to win every trophy at least once in their carrier but both of them never won a world cup so i hate it you probably say "neymar will win it" Neymar Really Neymar ? He is a gold digger not a best player and now your saying "he hates neymar he is bales fan" i call neymar neymoney and Wales I Never Seen Wales in The World Cup

Marco Assassin says:

WALID Maumud says:
