The World Cup in 2026 will mark the last time football superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will face off on the field, as they lead their respective countries, Argentina and Portugal. This highly anticipated match is set to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where Inter Miami and Al-Nassr will compete in a mini-tournament known as the Riyadh Season Cup. Alongside Inter Miami and Al-Nassr, Croatian national team member Marcelo Brozović will be directly involved in this historic clash.
While Luka Modric may not be able to participate in this final showdown due to his potential future club commitments, it is clear that both Messi and Ronaldo have a significant impact on the sport and have set boundaries that are difficult to break. With a combined total of 37 matches under their belts, it is anyone’s game when it comes to determining who is greater. However, one thing is certain – this duo has forever changed the world of football and will continue to inspire future generations of players.
