Messi vs Ronaldo? There's no debate!

Jamie Carragher neatly organized "Meho Daejeon."

"That's not a matter of debate. Cristiano Ronaldo is nowhere near Lionel Messi," Carragher said in an appearance on the British broadcaster CBS Sports.

Carragher's words are true. The so-called "Mejo Battle" between Messi and Ronaldo ended when Messi lifted his eighth Ballon d'Or in his career.

In a way, Messi's win was natural. It is no exaggeration to say that the 2022-23 season is Messi's year. Messi shook off his long-standing relationship by winning the FIFA World Cup Qatar. He got off to a shaky start by losing the first group match against Saudi Arabia 1-2, but later defeated Poland and Mexico to advance to the round of 16. Since then, he has advanced to the finals by catching all powerful players such as Australia, the Netherlands and Croatia, and successfully won the trophy for the first time in 36 years after 1986 when he defeated defending champion France after a penalty shootout. 토토사이트

Messi has displayed remarkable performance during the process. He displayed tremendous performance by scoring seven goals and three assists in seven matches, and recording Man of the Math, setting a record for most offensive points in a World Cup as well as dominating all major competitions with this World Cup championship. It was truly a World Cup for Messi.

He returned to Paris Saint-Germain after the World Cup and maintained his outstanding performance. Although he made it to the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League, he showed disappointing performance as a team, scoring 16 goals and 16 assists in 32 matches in the league. Having conquered the soccer world in such a way, Messi left the European stage to spend the last years of his career.

Messi has displayed outstanding performances in the 2022-23 season, including the World Cup title, and won his eighth Ballon d'Or award in his career. "This award is given as achievement that I achieved together with the Argentine national team. It is a gift given to the players, coaching staff and the Argentinean people. I am proud that I did not stop taking on the challenge. All I had left was the World Cup," he said.

Messi has become an "all-time legend" in the soccer world. Carragher also praised Messi. "Ronaldo is one of the best goal scorers of all time, but Messi is the best player of all time. You can say it without hesitation. If Ronaldo simply scored a goal, Messi was an incredible player even when he scored a goal," he said.

Before Son Heung-min in soccer, there was Kim Yeon-kyung in volleyball

In China, the 0-3 complete defeat against Korea in the second round of the 2026 FIFA World Cup Asian qualifying round is still a hot topic.

The portal site "Wang Yi (English name NetEase)" praised Son Heung-min (31), the captain of the Korean national soccer team, for his confidence in his mental confidence and maintenance of his playing style, which does not care about China's rough defense.

"The Chinese national soccer team was overwhelmed by the personal charisma of Son Heung-min, who has psychological qualities as the best athlete, such as strong will to win, game dominance, and determination," Wang Yi said. "A Korean sports player who has displayed this influence in the past in the national competition was Kim Yeon-kyung (35) in women's volleyball."

Son Heung-min shines as the top scorer of the 2021-22 English Premier League (EPL) in the season of the 2020 FIFA Pushcash Awards (FIFA) "Eurosport."

Kim Yeon-koung won the European Champions League and Olympic MVP and scoring title in the 2011-12 season. The International Volleyball Federation's official social media "Ballie Ball World" was selected as the 2021 Women's Most Valuable Player, saying it played a decisive role in the semifinals of the Tokyo Olympics in Korea.

"Kim Yeon-kyung was famous for her confidence and bold play on the court," said Wang Yi. In addition to this, words and actions that reflect relentless personal tendencies have inspired many players and officials," he said, recalling the Korean women's volleyball ace who competed with the Chinese national team for a long time.

Kim Yeon-kyung was a world-class player early on, as her career of winning the International Volleyball Federation Grand Champions Cup scoring title at the age of 21. "But I constantly challenged and honed," Wang Yi said, citing his experience on the Chinese stage from 2009 to 2011 in Japan's 2011 to 2020 Turkiye in 2017 to 2018 to 2022. 스포츠토토

After two seasons of overseas expansion, Kim Yeon-kyung dominated Japan with the 2009-10 scoring champion and 2010-11 MVP, laying the groundwork for her to stand tall as the world's No. 1 player in the European Volleyball Federation Champions League and the Olympics.

"Kim Yeon-kyung kept calm under pressure and developed mental qualities through international competitions that did not lose confidence even when he met strong opponents," Wang Yi said, explaining to a Chinese reader what he gained by going abroad without being satisfied with Korea's best.

China's women's volleyball boasts three-time Olympic gold medal world championships, three-time World Cup championships, and five World Cup wins. "Kim Yeon-kyung's confidence affected her colleagues and the audience," said Wang Yi. "I was encouraged to overcome no matter how difficult it was," he said, summarizing why the Korean national team was difficult.

Wang Yi, who recalled that a clear understanding of one's ability to understand the hard work and preparation skills was a real advantage, explained the global ripple effect, saying, "Many female volleyball junior players from various countries are considered role models because they were encouraged by Kim Yeon-kyung's presence."
