You're basing your assessment on a few matches, Messi scores more sitters than any player in the world simply because of the talent around him. Not a big game player? Ronaldo scored the opener in the Champions League final in 2008. In addition, for Man U he scored many of the goals in 1-0 victories which were integral wins during his seasons there. He scored the FA Cup winner (07 I think) as well. And he scored the winner in the Copa Del Rey. He's only made 1 CL final appearance and make it count. You're wrong. If your greatest from the greatest comparison is true then why hasn't Messi delivered a World Cup? I'd suggest its the team around him. He happens to have a club team that makes it possible. If Messi and Ronaldo swapped teams I promise you Ronaldo would be winning his 3rd World Player of the Year.
