  1. The way the game is viewed has changed. The world cup argument is becoming an outdated concept. It used to hold more importance in determining the greatest because it was the only real football that was shown worldwide at the time of Pele and Maradona. The respective top leagues and the European cup aka the CL was not followed by a worldwide viewing audience like it is now. Club football now holds even more importance, which is why people recognise Messi's greatness has been proven over what he's shown and achieved as a player throughout his career. Lots of players have won world cups, yet very few have played to the level Messi has, let alone have done that for 15 years. That's why some huge names in football believe Messi is the greatest. Needless to say, they are well qualified to judge.

  2. Yes he is, but beating these teams is easier said than done. Croatia is gonna be tough. Their midfield is excellent, so is their defense. I just think its their to lose.

  3. Comedy Nights Show? Cristiano Ronaldo is the ultimate GOAT!

  4. I love these guys! My virtual football friends.

  5. No way will France fail to win the World Cup. The only question is who finishes 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

  6. Croatia 2 England 1 – 2018 World Cup Semifinal

  7. Psychological or Physical Football which is tough at International level

  8. Messi is already the GOAT of football, if he drags Argentina to a World Cup win, he becomes the 🐐 of Sports.

  9. This tournament should have very little to zero sway over who the GOAT is. Messi and Ronaldo are far out of their primes, both close to retiring. The GOAT in your mind should really just be about their prime

  10. Senegal beating the previous world champions, France in 2002 and making it to the quarter finals for their first world cup ever, that was a big deal too.

  11. We're also two games away from seeing argentine come top 4

  12. If Argentina loses all the blame will be on the supporting cast , but if they win the World Cup all the credit will go to Messi . That’s how the media and people have always seen it , won’t change now . France will beat Croatia in a rematch 100% .

  13. Already undisputed. Ain't seen anyone ever do what he does on a weekly basis it's just bonkers to be that world class to do that for that long . And forget this guy hasn't been tapping the ball in from 5 yards for last 5 years he has been doing magical things. Alien .

  14. After his behavior against The Netherlands Messi doesn’t deserve it to be called WC.
    In terms of influence on the game Johan Cruyff is the GOAT.

  15. It seems harsh but I'm afraid even if he does win it , cr7s international career is still far superior. First of all goal to game ratio is significantly better. Secondly he's far less reliant on penalties . Out of 118, 17 have come from pens. For leo out of 95, 22 have come from pens. Thirdly cr7 does it where it counts in competitive matches. Out of his 118, 98 are competitive goals. For Leo's 95, 52 are competitive. Not to mention cr7s got a far better ratio in competitive matches obviously. Fourthly, while atm Portugal without cr7 is better than Argentina without Leo, from 2007-2019 Leo had a much better supporting cast than cr7 did. Fifthly cr7 has had great individual performances and scored goals against Europe's best teams. Spain in 2018, Holland in 2012, Sweden in 2013, Switzerland in 2019, even Germany in 2021 in spite of the fact they lost that game. Leo's scored against good teams in friendlies. In competitive not so much. Never scored a competitive goal against Brazil. He scored against Holland but that was a pen. He's never had a performance like that or even scored a non penalty goal against teams that good in competitive situations.

  16. That person who send that Tweet to Shaka that Messi is games any of calling Messi the Goat my question to him is which TWO games away he speaks off Semi-finals an Third & fourth place because that's what is going to happen Messi will not be playing in the World Cup Final 2022 because the Semi-finals game tomorrow that's the game they will loose HE will have to settle to play for Third & Fourth Place.

  17. CR7 is my 🐐 and I’m a righty. All y’all righty’s saying Messi is the goat like if y’all watch his highlights to kick better with ur right😂😂😂😂

  18. If only this years final was played against semi pro hosts like 1958 was I’m positive Messi would win as Pele did .

  19. First of all there's no Greatest of All Times. Time is endless. A hundred years from now, young people will not be talking about Messi or Ronaldo. Two hundred yrs from now, football players will astound people living in that time, while we who are living now will not even be remembered. Which of us know who were the greatest players in the 1920's? Even with the technologies now a hundred yrs from now the images will look poor to people living in those times. The accurate statement is "such and such is the best attacking or defensive players or the most complete player I've seen so far. " In my humble opinion Pele is the most complete player I've seen so far. I like Messi but he's not the best I've seen so far, he's one of the best.

  20. Messi? Messi is going home after Battle for 3rd place…

  21. Morocco 🇲🇦 vs Argentina 🇦🇷 final Morocco 🇲🇦 winner of the wc 🚾

  22. The world cup has already lost credibility to me. Why don't they just give to Messi instead this comical plot to make sure he outstaged Ronaldo? They think the only argument against CR7 will be that oh Messi won the world cup and he didn't. How disingenuous homosapiens can be? I personally don't care about who wins the world cup anymore just like the Ballon d'or. Everything about the GOAT thing sucks. I "don't " mean a thing to me. Messi criticizes a ref and the next moment he's sent home. Ridiculous!

  23. No worry. Messi will get a favorable spot just outside the box on a non foul and win it.

  24. I'm a Messi fan but your titles are too cringe and its like you wanna jinx him.

  25. Morocco is DEFINITELY the greatest underdog story ever… and it may not be over!!!

  26. Not Greece winning the World Cup? Or were they a top rated team

  27. I want Argentina and Messi to win this World Cup just to break Shaka’s arrogance.

  28. Messi fans, football fans, let us all come together to laugh at those who deserve it 😂😂

    – Penaldo for being the biggest fraud in football, tap in and penalty specialist, with a now a new specialty which is bench warming, and is a man who only cares about himself, most arrogant footballer on the planet 😂

    – Portugal squad who kept putting Penaldo and his awful performances and free kicks, had to use him otherwise there would be a Piers Morgan interview about how the Portugal squad betrayed him

    – His poor dead son who has to be crying in heII because his weak pathetic father couldn’t deliver a good enough sperm 😂

    – His father who was an alcoholic most likely due to having to put up with his arrogant and pathetic child which led his father’s death 😂

    – His wife made of plastic who pretends to like him because he is rich 😂 only thing Penaldo has going for him with the ladies is his wallet

    – His children who have to be raised by a failure and are probably being taught his ways which will make they grow up to be an even bigger failure than their father

    The debate between Messi and Ronaldo has never been a serious one, Messi has always been better and delusional Penaldo fans just never wanted to accept it.

  29. This has to be the worst commentators. Dont deserve to be in Espn
    Really in this segmente you will speak about this guys habits?

  30. Only if he win then he's undisputed goat but now he's one of the goats

  31. Shaka is a complete 🤡🤡🤡🤡 GET HIM OFF THE PANEL

  32. 😅😅. Shaka with his one nap and two sleep🤣🤣.

  33. People trying to say if you lose 1 game at the world cup, you're not the greatest. How stupid is that? This basically says only players from the top 10 or so soccer countries can possibly have the best player. Every one else doesn't matter apparently. How about you look at the players as individuals. How do they do in terms of goals and assists? Do they make a difference on their team? Do they dribble well? Do they have good playmaking skills? How are their individual accomplishments?

    Messi is head and shoulders above everyone who has played at a professional level before him. He's the goat, with or without a world cup.

  34. He's the goat 🐐 In the farm 🤣🤣🤣🤣 that's what I know

  35. Messssssssiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  36. Messssssssiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

  37. Messssssssiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  38. Messssssssiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  39. I pray Argentina can go all the way and win it for their county and the whole world who’s rooting for them and Messi. He deserves it for the career he’s had and just to hear Shaka say those words would be the icing on the cake along with the Ronaldo fan boy tears and denial. Most importantly I just want Messi to win it for himself, his teammates and his country and us fans who know he never needed it to be the true GOAT

  40. "I'm not a doctor of bus routes" is my favourite comeback ever on this channel.

  41. Come on be realistic. Someone plays 1000 games and you wait for 7 matches every 4 years to judge him? Let’s come back to common sense and a little more IQ, less sensationalism please more quality

  42. People calling messi the GOAT…I don't have any objections….but this debate will never ever end….because for a lot like me Ronaldo will always be the GOAT…..he just started performing bad for 3-4 months now…

  43. Honestly a world cup win would add nothing more to Messi's legacy.. he's without doubt the best forward player in football history.. but yes, it will give messi fans one more point to uphold when arguing with fans of Ronaldo.. No player has done things messi has done..

  44. A penalty shootout will be France detriment. They must avoid that at all cost. The other 3 teams goalies have all proven themselves i dont think lloris is up to task should that happen if France goes to penalties with Morocco it’s over for them.
