IShowSpeed gives his answer to the Messi vs. Ronaldo debate

Soccer is a global sport that is watched by billions of people. And two of the most beloved players in this sport right now are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. These two have dominated the soccer world for over a decade. As a result, their fans always debate over who is the “Greatest of All Time” among the two.

IShowSpeed has declared himself as a Ronaldo fan. So, no matter how good the former Barcelona superstar plays, it doesn’t impress Speed. Once again, the 17-year-old stood biased toward the former Manchester United legend after his performance in the World Cup. Watkins tweeted, Ronaldo is the goat I done ever wanna hear nothing about Messi.”

The grandest soccer tournament, the FIFA World Cup, is currently taking place in Qatar. There are 32 national teams clashing for the grandest title in the world. Ronaldo is leading Portugal in the tournament. Recently, he scored a goal from the penalty spot at the World Cup match against Ghana, where Portugal ended up grabbing a narrow win of 3-2.

The Argentine star Messi also had a similar start. He also scored a penalty in his first match. However, the outcome here was different as Argentina lost 2-1, thanks to a brilliant comeback from Saudi Arabia. After this defeat, the chances of seeing Messi against Ronaldo in the finals are getting slimmer. However, with two more matches left in the group stages, there is plenty of time for that to happen.
