So Messi runs more, passes more, tackles more, scores more, and has single handedly gotten Argentina into the Final scoring or assisting on 5 of 8 goals.
Are you really arguing that Portugal team is a small good as Argentina because that is how I take those stats. Messi averages less than 10 km a game while cr7 averages over 10 km a game. So no Messi doesn't run more. Cr7 was hurt so he had 1 tackle in 3 games while Messi averages 1.166 per game big whoop. Cr7 averages 2 balls recovered per game while Messi averages 1.166 a game. Cr7 had to throw up dumb shots because he team sacked while Messi gets to concentrate on quality shots not quantity lime cr7. I still think cr7 is a better total player but Messi is a better finisher. He makes people look silly and gets open shots he doesn't miss. I think they both are the clear number 1 and 1a. There is a reason that together they have won the the last 5 or 6 players of the year. The hate on both sides of the argument is over the top

So Di Maria is a bit of a ball hog who doesn't score, doesn't play much defense or pass as well as Messi who is a forward.[/quote]
