All the while being composed even in high pressure situations. This individual always strives for greatness and when playing against older players loves the challenge.

5.Messi/Ronaldo ? and why?

Ronaldo all round talent (Ariel ability down) not only as #9, #7/11, even rotation as #10 this makes him dynamic and he offers so much quality which ignites the team's he has played for.

For attitude it would be Messi I like his calm, collective manner. However if we talk stats then.....
