Hi and I accept your debate. I am arguing that C. Ronaldo is NOT better the L. Messi.

1) Ok first, Messi has been named one of the "best players" in soccer.

2) Your list of most important things can be debated. You do not have a source saying that those are the most important things so I choose to go by my definition.

3) My definition: In soccer, there is only one thing that matters, scoring a goal. If a team has teamwork, if it has passing, and even if it has control. Do all of these things really matter if the other team can just score goals?

4) Soccer is not judged on whether you can pass a ball or whether you have control. Soccer is judged as to which team has the most goals/points.

5) Just because a player can pass, has control and teamwork, it does not just make the player "good". You have to look at the stats and the last time I checked Messi had better stats than Ronaldo.

6) Your argument about Messi not being able to pass, does not have control or teamwork is invalid. Just because a player chooses not to do those things does not mean he is not capable of doing them. Messi can do all of the things you just listed. He just chooses not to because he is GOOD enough to score a goal on his own.
