The 2018 FIFA World Cup which kicked off in Russia last week continues this week. Many of the matches played during the course of the week trended on social media. However, Croatia’s 3-0 victory over Argentina yesterday stood out.

Mostly because Lionel Messi, one of football’s most legendary players of all time and of this generation failed to lead his Argentine team to victory. This attracted tons of reactions from football fans all over the world.

Is this your GOAT?

The debate of who’s the greatest of all time (GOAT) in football continues as fans compared Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo, as usual.
