The rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has been a debate for the ages. It is still one of the hottest topics even after almost two decades. Both of these players have been at the top of the game since making their debuts in the early 2000s. Although their numbers aren’t what they used to be, both Messi and Ronaldo have proven they have what it takes to be at the top.
The soccer world has been looking for another rivalry that could elevate the sport to another level, just like Messi and Ronaldo did. The competition between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland could be in the conversation, as both players seem to be improving with ease as time passes. However, a recent clip of an Argentine teacher might bring another duo to our minds.
Cristiano Ronaldo fans left furious after Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi comparison
An Argentine teacher resorted to involving the beautiful game to silence her students during a class. In the clip, she can be heard saying, “The one who keeps talking prefers Mbappe over Messi.” It is astonishing to notice how quickly the students became silent, indicating their loyalty to the 7x Ballon d’Or winner.

It is not all that surprising. Messi’s World Cup win for Argentina was arguably one of the most historic wins in the history of sports. The PSG star stepped up for his country when they needed him, especially when he bagged a brace in the final against France. The video has attracted the attention of Ronaldo’s fans as well.
notice why the teacher didn’t said cristiano ? because the student will keep talking because they prefers ronaldo over pessi

As expected, the video has sparked a huge debate among soccer fans. While some believe Ronaldo still has the edge over Messi even at 38 years old, some claim that the Portuguese striker is out of the question.
Ronaldo out of the conversation 😭

Mbappe has proven to be a prodigal talent, or one might even admit that he isn’t a talent anymore. He’s been world-class for PSG for a while now, scoring winners and coming in clutch when they need him. Recently, the 24-year-old became the top scorer for the club, with 201 goals. It is an astonishing feat and it looks like his comparison with one of the greatest athletes of all time is well deserved.
