2018 FIFA World Cup: This World Cup Might be The Last of These Great Players

Soccer is the most celebrated sport in the world. The great player Pele had once said that “The World Cup is a very important way to measure the good players and the great ones.” The greatness of a player defines as having the size, amount, extent or intensity considerably above the normal or average. It is the ability to make the difference that helps you stand best from the rest.

It was Pele and Maradona back in those days and it’s the same with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo now. Let’s talk about them! These two players are the legendary players of the football. They are famous even among those who are not the soccer fans.

If you plan on going to Russia to witness history, be sure to mark Portugal and Argentina as must-watch on your World Cup Travel guide. Undoubtedly, Messi and Ronaldo are still the two best players in the world. Who’s better than the other is an individual choice. But it’s undeniable that the end of soccer’s most illustrious player rivalry is near.

This year’s World Cup could be the first in a string of lasts for Messi and Ronaldo. It’s not official until they announce it, but this could easily be the last World Cup that they both feature in. Yes, you read it right! Sad but probabilities are the highest.

Speculations by the experts are completely based on the ages of these two. By the tournament’s end, Messi will be 31. Ronaldo is already 33. By the next tournament, they’d be 35 and 37, respectively. Their elite talents could hold them over, but you really don’t see non-goalkeepers playing into their late 30s.

Well, to let you know Messi has already been talked out of international retirement once so chances are high that he is about to retire from international duty again. Here are the statements by the two players indicating that this will be their last world cup:

“We depend on the results, unfortunately. We feel that if we are not champions … we will not have another.”

said Messi, whereas Ronaldo said that,

“I achieved everything I dreamed of in football. I really think I have achieved so many nice things that I don’t have any more dreams. But if you ask me if I want to keep winning of course I do. Obviously, I would love to win the World Cup. But if my career ended now I would be very proud. I never thought my career was going to be so nice.”

However, there is no any official announcement of taking retirement made by the two yet.
