It is the eternal dilemma: Cristiano or Messi? Messi or Cristiano? A dilemma that crosses borders and the beautiful game itself. And that reached the heart of the Super Bowl itself, in the middle of the final between Tom Brady’s Buccaneers and Mahomes’ Chiefs. Tom Brady and … Leo Messi won the Super Bowl. To choose the best in what the United States calls ‘soccer’ the criterion that appeared on the stadium’s giant screen was that of the Champions League, Competition in which Cristiano has won one more title than Messi, five to four. To the absolute and general indignation of all the fans of Cristiano.
The Super Bowl took part and got wet … by Messi. At the game stops, the giant Super Bowl screen, at Raymond James Stadium, before 25,000 fans and millions of viewers from around the world, showed an image with the four best athletes, presented as The Goats (The greatest of all time, the best of all time) in the American league American football (NFL), NBA basketball, NHL ice hockey and Champions League football.
Appeared Tom Brady (NFL), Michael Jordan (NBA), Wayne Wretzky (NHL)… y Leo Messi (Champions League). The outrage of Cristiano’s fans did not take long to take over social networks, as Messi has won four Champions League titles against the Portuguese’s five (one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid). But the organizers of the Super Bowl included, in addition to the number of titles in the top European competition, they included other sporting criteria (Messi has a Ballon d’Or more than Cristiano) that were not made clear, something that the ‘Cristianistas’ they took as a lack of rigor and a frontal attack on the figure of the Portuguese forward of Juventus.
