Koke Warns About Cristiano Ronaldo's Dangerousness in Games

Cristiano Ronaldo is either the world's greatest soccer player or he is a close runner-up to Argentina's Lionel Messi.

Unhappy at the manner of the questioning, they jeered the reporter as he spoke.

"Messi has been bred to be the ultimate vision of a Barcelona player, tapping into his uncanny talent, and a style of play that hasn't changed too much since his early years as a child, whereas Ronaldo is a self-made monster of adaptation, gym work and determination. It's the answer to 'Which roster do you want?' It's the answer to 'Who is the best player any of us has ever seen?' It's the answer to 'What is the meaning of life?' The answer is always Messi".

He is the player they can not do without and yet, at the same time, the player whose influence has become so overarching that some team-mates seem inhibited.

"The likes of Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain will also have to step up".

A major global tournament is about all there is left to win for the five-time world player of the year.

Bourdain's loss will no doubt be felt heavily by the people he inspired, and who loved his contributions in the realm of culture. The French prosecutor confirmed that he died by suicide while staying at the Le Chambard Hotel in the old part of Kaysersberg.

Argentina should get out of the group stages comfortably, but it remains to be seen how far Messi's brilliance can take them. Messi can not go it alone, but the burden on him is colossal.

At times, though, the criticism has bordered on the gratuitous, not least over his reluctance to sing the national anthem.

In that particular tournament, despite the team labouring en route to slim wins in the group stages, come the Round of 16, Di Maria scored a 118th minute goal in extra time against an inspired Switzerland defence to avert a penalty shootout and bring Argentina to the quarter-finals. "It was our first game in a major tournament and they couldn't beat Iceland so it was not nice for them".

Lionel Messi will go down as one of the greatest and in the past, people have gone above and beyond to get a glimpse of the five-time Balon d'Or victor, but a latest craze involving the Barcelona forward is just a bit too weird, for my liking. The last person, other than them, to win the Ballon d'Or: Brazil's Kaká.

The Albiceleste have defeated the West Africans in all their previous meetings at the tournament but in November they went down 4-2 to Gernot Rohr's side in a friendly tie.
