Can I start by saying that I am one of the people who support the neutral argument in this debate. I am of the belief they are superstars in their own right and we should respect them for that.
However, after looking through the comments It is clear that a majority of you believe that Messi is the more accomplished of the two players. Going through each players' achievements this is more than corrent. With two Balon d'ors under his name, countless trophies with Barcelona and even a gold medal at international level, Messi has a record unmatched by many. Although he doesn't boast as big a trophy cabinet, Ronaldo is well travelled, and very much accompished in a number of different leagues. He has been top scorer in more than one country and holds records that look to stay under him name for years to come.
From what you have provided in the comments Lionel Messi is the more accomplished player, Cristiano Ronaldo the more travelled player, Lionel Messi more of the team player and Cristiano Ronaldo better at getting goals.
With that said Lionel Messi takes the debate, simply because he has more to show for his ability. This is not to say Ronaldo is a bad player. Simply put Messi has won more and in the end, when your career is over that is all that is around to measure your success.
But like I said. I sit on the fence, and if there is any advice I can give you. Enjoy them both on the field. We are witnessing two players set to be legends of the game. Enjoy it while you still can.
