The “greatest image of 2022” was posted online by famous footballers Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, smashing the net.
In conjunction with a prominent design house, the pair shared a unique photo on their social media profiles on the night of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Both competitors were captured in a photo seated across from one another. Both soccer players are seen playing chess in the image.
Due to their revolutionary performances on the field of play, Ronaldo and Messi are regarded as the best footballers of all time.
With 1604 goals and 581 assists, the Portuguese and Argentine stars have collected 12 Ballon d’Or titles.
The FIFA World Cup 2022, which begins today in Qatar, will feature two of football’s most considerable talents, both of whom will be competing for the title of tournament victor for the first time.
Messi has indicated that this will “very likely” become the last World Cup he competes in. After extra time, Argentina fell to Germany in the World Cup 2014 final match.
He hasn’t yet received soccer’s highest prize, unlike past greats Pele and Diego Maradona. He did, yet, help Argentina win the Copa America last year, which allowed them to succeed in an effective global competition.
At the age of 37, Ronaldo, Messi’s longtime rival for the honor of best player in the world, will make his final World Cup appearance. The football player with the most goals ever finally won his 700th career goal.
Portugal’s semi-final exit in 2006 remains their best showing with Ronaldo globally. However, Ronaldo and Portugal won an exhilarating championship at Euro 2016.
He wants to become the fifth player to score in five straight World Cups, breaking the records of Pele, Miroslav Klose, and Uwe Seeler.
Ronaldo will have to get over his rocky start to the season at Manchester United when he later accused the club of “betraying” him.
