Recently, Ronaldo shared a photo with Messi that went viral on Instagram. Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo are the two greatest contemporary footballers in the world. They remain football experts who rarely appear together. They no longer compete against each other because they are on different teams in different leagues. They have never been part of a single team.

Ronaldo, a five-time FIFA Player of the Year, surpassed $1 billion in career earnings in 2020, making him the first active team athlete to do so.

When it comes to football records for total goals scored, Ronaldo is ahead of Messi. The Portuguese striker has scored more than 800 goals for club and country. With over 110 goals, he is officially recognized as the highest goalscorer by country, male or female. In addition, he scored more than 700 goals for the clubs he represented.
