Cristiano Ronaldo Fans Take Jabs at Lionel Messi After Argentina Crushed at Copa America

Argentina’s loss, with Number 10 in the squad, has renewed the Ronaldo-Messi rivalry on social media, especially given the positive vibes around Ronaldo after his joyful win in the 2016 Euros and this summer’s Nations League with Portugal.

There were those, however, who stood up in Messi’s defence, arguing that he is no less a star than his Portuguese rival:

Brazil swept past Argentina 2-0 with Premier League stars Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino netting goals.
