Messi is still a small step ahead of Ronaldo right now though, sorry to say Inter, but it's true.
You Portugal guys over me, how far do you reckon your team can go? Czech Republic was a breeze, but Spain are likely waiting in the semis, and if you can get through them, I suspect it will be Germany in the finals. That's the two best national teams in the world today. You think CR7 can pull you all the way through? If he does, that will be the work of a true all time great, he will have a foot up on Messi who is yet to make a mark in the WC, and really put himself in the Pele/Maradona discussion.
Messi - Ronaldo discussion is pure speculation and your opinion. Anyone can argue that Iniesta and Xavi playing with Ronaldo would be the same.
Personally, I think we make it to the finals and lose to Germany. Spain don't seem to be their selves in this tournament and they don't have a healthy on form striker for us to worry about. If anything playing with Fernando Torres would only help US
