The 2022 World Cup in Qatar almost certainly represents the final World Cups in the legendary careers of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
This is the fifth World Cup that both players have gone to, having already played at Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.
Ronaldo is now 37 and Messi 35, which means that it is highly likely that both players won’t be around in the United States in four years’ time.
So all football lovers should sit back and cherish the last chance they will get to see two of football’s greatest ever players on the biggest stage.
And in this last dance, could Ronaldo or Messi finally get their hands on the World Cup?
Messi went so close in 2014 as a beaten finalist, while the best performance by Ronaldo’s Portugal was a semi-final appearance in 2006.
