Messi is strong, but Ronaldo is ‘excluded’ and humiliated
Can you be more proud of yourself than this? While he moved to a place he was dismissed as a periphery, he who was mistaken as a ‘rival’ is winning and winning in the big leagues. This is the story of Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr) and Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain).
The International Football Federation (FIFA) unveiled 14 candidates for the 2022 Player of the Year through its official channel on the 13th (hereinafter Korean time). A large number of world class names have been listed.
There is Messi, who has won the World Cup trophy for the first time in his career and has risen to the ranks of the undisputed GOAT (The Greatest Of All Time), standing shoulder to shoulder with Pele (Brazil) and Diego Maradona (Argentina).
In addition, Kylian Mbafe (PSG), who scored 8 goals in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and became the top scorer, Karim Benzema, who won the 2022 Ballon d’Or, Luka Modric, who still boasts a class, and Brazilian god Vinicius (above Real Madrid).
Elling Haaland, Julian Alvarez, Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Neymar, Achraf Hakimi (PSG), Sadio Mane (Bayern Munich), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Dortmund), Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona) was also selected.
But there is no familiar name, Ronaldo. He was humiliated by being dropped from the nomination list, let alone selected. Ronaldo divided the world football world with Messi, the ‘god of soccer’ in the past, but is on an extreme decline this season. After terminating the contract by mutual agreement with Manchester United of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), his former team, due to noise, he recently moved to Al Nasr in Saudi Arabia. 먹튀검증
Ronaldo said in the past that he would not go to the Middle East or the United States until the end, but he became a member of Al Nasr because there was no place to call him.
Even as a national representative, he did not show much activity. While Messi led Argentina to the championship with 7 goals and 3 assists, it was difficult for Ronaldo to start. He sat on the bench and wept over his team’s quarterfinal elimination. However, he is suffering from a series of humiliations as he was also excluded from this year’s Player of the Year nomination.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min (Tottenham), the signature striker of the Korean national team, is also missing. He scored 23 goals in the EPL last season and showed off his sharpness by becoming the joint top scorer with Salah, but he was not selected by FIFA.
