‘Original Ronaldo’ Ronaldo admires Messi… “Farewell befitting a genius who dominated the era”

Legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo delivered a message admiring Messi’s victory through his SNS. 

Messi and Argentina won the penalty shootout (4-2) after drawing 3-3 to overtime in the 2022 Qatar World Cup final against France held at Lusail Stadium in Al Dayen, Qatar on the 19th (Korean time).

Argentine ace Messi led the team’s upward trend by scoring in all matches except for the match against Poland in the third group stage. He also vomited the spirit of being selected as the best player in all four tournament matches from the round of 16 to the final.

With 7 goals and 3 assists in this tournament, Messi surpassed ‘Legend’ Pele and recorded the most attack points (20) in World Cup history, and also won the ‘Golden Ball’, the best player award in the tournament.

When Argentina won the championship thanks to Messi’s performance, the ‘GOAT (Greatest Of All Time)’ controversy came to an end. When Messi, who was unable to obtain only the World Cup among numerous trophies, became a complete player, praise poured in from all over the world.

Meanwhile, Brazil’s World Cup hero Ronaldo also praised Messi. 

On the 19th, Ronaldo posted a picture of the victory and congratulations on his SNS with the words “Congratulations to Messi”. 

“This player’s football takes away any rivalry. I saw a lot of Brazilian and international fans cheering for Messi enthusiastically in the final,” he said, referring to the fact that even his rival Brazilians aspired to win the title.

Brazilian legend Ronaldo played a key role in Brazil’s victory at the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, South America’s World Cup victory before Argentina.

After Ronaldo, South American teams did not experience a moment of glory on the World Cup stage until Argentina won this time. 

Ronaldo’s homeland, Argentina’s South American rival, Brazil, also had a disappointing performance in the recent World Cup, not befitting the nickname of eternal champion. Out of the five tournaments held since winning the championship in 2002, the experience of advancing to the semifinals is only once, at the 2014 Brazil World Cup held in their home country.메이저놀이터

Lastly, Ronaldo praised Messi’s victory, saying, “It is a farewell worthy of a genius who has dominated an era beyond a World Cup star.” 

Meanwhile, unlike Ronaldo’s goodbye, Messi doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to say goodbye to the Argentine national team. 

In an interview after the match, Messi said, “Retirement from the national team? I will not retire from the national team. I want to continue playing in the World Cup champion Argentina uniform,” he dismissed rumors of retirement from the national team.
