Messi is the best player in the world, and it's not even close.

Everybody talks about Ronaldo and how he scores goals and how good he is. Here's the stat that jumps out to me - Shot attempts.

See my stats above - Ronaldo played 3 games in the World Cup and is 3rd in the entire World Cup is shot attempts.

In these stats, Ronaldo had 1018 shot attempts. Messi is 2nd with 735. Ibra is 3rd with 564. Just goes to prove that Ronaldo scores because he is the most selfish player on the planet.

Love this stat about shots outside the penalty area:

Ronaldo takes more than twice as many shots from this distance, but still has fewer goals overall (than Messi).
