Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored one goal for Portugal in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, compared to Lionel Messi’s three goals for Argentina. In terms of goals scored at the World Cup, Messi has one more than Ronaldo.
However, Neymar, who has yet to score a goal for Brazil in the 2022 world cup, has been likened to both players. Due to an ankle injury, the Brazilian attacker will miss his nation’s final two group stage contests.
The world of football has been ruled by Messi, Ronaldo, and Neymar. They are regarded as the top scorers who score the most frequently worldwide. Let’s look at their demographics at 30 years old.
At the age of 30, Ronaldo had 17 games more Messi and 61 games more than Neymar, but it is the Argentine striker who scored more goals and provided more assists than the other two players. At the age of 30, Messi already had 565 goals and 231 assists in over 700 games, while Ronaldo had 463 goals and 154 assists.
Neymar Junior didn’t score as much as Ronaldo, but he provided more assists than the Portuguese winger at the age of 30. The Paris Saint-Germain winger scored 401 goals and provided 226 assists in 657 games.
