One of the endless dialogues in the football arena is the one about who is the best player that ever played the game. Pele and Maradona are the most common names for this matching title but recently young Lionel Messi challenged the trends. Not only by interfering between the two football giants, but really harmful to take the position as the sole king on the throne.
Probably the only staying barrier on Messi’s way is the World Cup title. Given the Argentinian’s age and form Brazil 2014 seems to be Messi’s golden ticket to take yet another and greatest title as the greatest footballer of all times.
Messi has been breaking record after record in the last few years and pushed the football standards to levels that were impossible not a long ago. He managed to raise the season goal/game ratio above 1.0 and with the pace of the last years he can become the highest UEFA Champions League scorer of all time at age of 26. He is also one of the main pretenders for the 5th successive ballon d’Or which is already his record (currently he is the holder of four successive titles).
Despite all the research many football experts are arguing that in order to be regarded the best footballer one needs to win the World Cup which is the most important event in the football world. By achieving that Messi will certainly join Pele and Maradona in the endless battle. Moreover if looking at his young age he has the probability to completely settle himself as the best footballer of all time.
Brazil 2014 will be another battle between the two modern best football players Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Both players achieved many wins with clubs (Barcelona and Real Madrd) but they still miss important international trophies with their respective national teams (Argentina and Portugal) therefore the World Cup will be a great event for the two to prove independently also on national team stages and gain valuable points in their ongoing battle.
In the beginning of the 2013/2014 season has been having some hard times because of repeating accidents. He has been playing on extremely high levels for the last 5 years and some are speculating that now the side effects are showing up. However the football lovers hope that he will be totally retrieved and fit for the most important event of this season which is the world cup in Brazil 2014.
