For almost two decades, soccer fans have been drawn into the never-ending debate over the question of who is the best soccer player of our generation: Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

The debate about who the GOAT is dragged into endless areas and statistical data, which included not only the number of goals and assists and the number of titles, but also questions about character, virility, charisma and the ability to excel in moments of truth.

Now, according to many in the world of football, the current World Cup decisively decides the issue.

While Ronaldo is suffering from a miserable season, currently without a team at all, dealing with quite a few affairs off the field and even in both games he was kicked out of the Portugal team due to poor ability - Leo Messi is still in his prime at the age of 35, and tonight (Tuesday) swept the Argentina team to the World Cup final after 0:3 Impressive for Croatia.

In the current World Cup, Messi has five goals, three assists and four awards for the outstanding player, and he is undoubtedly the outstanding player in the tournament, proving that he is never-ending.

In Argentina, Messi has always been considered second only to Diego Maradona, the man whose feet led Argentina to win the World Cup in Mexico in 1986 - but even there they know: if Messi also stars in the final against France or Morocco, he will not just surpass Cristiano, but rise to the level of Maradona, the eternal idol.

"Massi the heart, in the best World Cup of his life," wrote the Argentinian "Ola", "sometimes the heart wins over logic, sometimes the adrenaline overcomes the pain, sometimes love is stronger than anything... after trying so much, after losing in the finals, after almost breaking down and giving up , he came back, with all his soul. And he is again in the World Cup final, again playing the best football of his life, and once again proving that he is the greatest of all."
