2017.06.20

Maradona on Monday was full of praise for Ronaldo, but he would still take Messi over the Portugal superstar regardless of his inability to to help Argentina win the  world title.

"Cristiano is an animal," Maradona told TyC Sports. "I wish he was Argentine.

"But I still prefer Messi. He is enjoying playing football and goes by opponents with ease.

"Leo cannot deliver the World Cup on his own. Even if he does not win a World Cup, we will still remember him."

Ronaldo was in action for his national team Portugal in their 2-2 draw against Mexico in the second match of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.
