Statistics show Messi struggles to score goals, but Ronaldo dives to win penalty goals. This is a fact that can not be disputed. Besides diving, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored several offside goals at the bland side of most assistant referees.
Messi has never dived to deceive his opponent team to win a penalty. This makes Messi outstanding when comparing the two legends.
The penalty awarded to Ronaldo against the Ghana Black Stars has been discussed on several big stations like the BBC, VOA, and thousands of social media and countless radio stations across the globe.
