The phenomenon of Cristiano Ronaldo: The best player in the world
::: Ronaldo has been the captain and leader of Real Madrid, single-handedly leading the team to victory in multiple occasions. He also broke many records in the process...
Cristiano Ronaldo led the Merengues to a total of 4 Champions League trophies in a 5-year span. In one of those campaigns, the Portuguese superstar scored in every single game for his club until they reached the competition's semi-finals. The former Manchester United player became the first player in the history of the tournament to hit the back of the net in 11 consecutive games. Ronaldo was also the first player in history to have scored 100 goals in the Champions League — Barcelona's Lionel Messi reached the same milestone roughly a year later.
::: Brilliant performance at the World Cup
Ronaldo had several great performances at the World Cup. The Portuguese National Team has always had high quality players, but ever since Ronaldo started playing for his country, the Seleção raised their level and finally won some silverware in 2016 and 2019. If you ask neutral fans about what was one of the best moments they will always remember from the last World Cup, they will most likely tell you that it was Ronaldo's hat-trick against Spain, right in the opening round. He would score a total of 4 goals in the 2016 FIFA World Cup — which was more than he had scored in his entire career in previous World Cup editions. Uruguay would eliminate Portugal in the knockout round, but Ronaldo, once again, showed that with him on the team, they can beat anyone.
Ronaldo and Messi face
no real competition
::: Lack of competitors
Cristiano Ronaldo is very positive about healthy competition. The Portuguese player never turned his back to tough challenges and he even admitted that his rivalry with Lionel Messi over the years has helped him to continuously improve as a player.
If we rule out Messi for a second, all the other current rivals for the Ballon d'Or are still clearly far from being at the same level of Ronaldo. Kilian Mbappé has done well in the Ligue 1, but he's yet to shine in the Champions League with PSG. In France, Mbappé managed to score 13 goals in his first year at the Parc des Princes and then 33 goals in following season. However, it's the Ligue 1 and the level of defences is not exactly top notch. In the Champions League, Mbappé never scored more than 4 goals in a single season for PSG. Not only that, but in the big games like the ones against Real Madrid, Ronaldo was clearly better and he was the one making the difference.
Then comes Modric, the last Ballon d'Or winner. He may have had a great World Cup with Croatia, but the truth is that he didn't perform the same way with Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, was one of the best players in the last Champions League edition, while Modric did not even make it to the team of the year. The Croatian, just like Ronaldo, has turned 34 this year, but is clearly showing signs of a faster decline...
Antoine Griezmann joined Barcelona this year and had his career highlight in 2018, when he was part of the French team that won the FIFA World Cup. While he has a significant influence in Atletico in the past years, it's hard to believe he'll be doing the same in Barça, especially with a player like Lionel Messi next to him.
No matter where you look, Cristiano Ronaldo always seems to be the better player. Now playing his second season in Juventus, the Portuguese star continues inspiring a lot of people around the world. He truly is a great example for those who believe in hard work and in succeeding in life.
