All eyes will be on the two most famous players of this generation, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, as they take to the field in Qatar.
Ronaldo’s Portugal is in Group H along with Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea. On the other hand, Messi’s Argentina will meet Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland in Group C.
Talking to Sport18, Ojha revealed that he is going to Qatar to watch the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Ojha admits he does not watch football much but cannot pass up the opportunity to watch Ronaldo play. Revealing the reason for coming to the World Cup, said Ojha (via NDTV Sports):
“Yes, I will go to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup 2022. I will watch Portugal vs Uruguay, the only reason behind this is Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m not a big fan, but I just want to see him play live.”
Ojha was then asked about his dream World Cup final. He replied that:
“See, I’m not very fond of football but if I had to choose, it would be Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentina vs Portugal.”
Lionel Messi has an advantage over Cristiano Ronaldo at FIFA World Cup 2022
Ronaldo and Messi are the two best players of this generation. For more than 15 years, they have faced off against each other, supporting each other in their quest for unquestionable supremacy. The battle often proves to be moot, but in terms of recent form, there is only one winner.
Lionel Messi currently has a significant advantage over his arch-rival Ronaldo. Messi has been in excellent form for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 14 assists in 19 games in all competitions. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has only scored 3 goals and has 2 assists in 16 games for Manchester United.
In addition, Ronaldo finds himself in the midst of an intense battle with Manchester United following his recent explosive interview. Considering his poor performances on the pitch and his lack of stability outside, it is difficult for the Portuguese to succeed in Qatar.
Meanwhile, Messi is not only in high form but also has a great relationship with the club and international teammates. It won’t be surprising to see him off to a brilliant start at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
