So, let's get up to the point and find out who is the god of football 2021, gently touching the results of previous years.
Well, needless to say, Diego was a legend. A legendary Argentine footballer. Every football fan know who he was. His performance in many matches goes beyond any reasonable understanding. For instance, in a 1986 match against the United Kingdom, Diego Maradona singlehandedly scored two goals, both of which came into the history of football as the most effective. For his famous goal, fans have given him names: “Hand of God” and “Goal of the Century'' respectively, as the first one was done by hand with no violation of the rules, and the second one… well, you just have to see it yourself – Maradona alone outplayed the half of the opposing team and scored an outstanding goal in the result. His performance led Napoli to many huge victories not only in Serie A.
Called “the king of football” by the fans, and being a real star on the pitch at every football game, Pelé, was a legendary player from Brazil, who was said to be one of the most successful goalscorers of all time for having a record of about a thousand goals, was also a confirmed player of the century by FIFA and IFFHS versions and got a world cup golden ball honor in 1970. He was the youngest player ever to score a goal in a world cup game (being only 17 years old). His uniqueness was his perfect diversity. Pelé was similarly great at passing, attacking, defending, dribbling, and heading.
Getting to the present days, Cristiano Ronaldo, a professional Portuguese football player, can have all chances to be called a god of football in 2021. As for now, Cristiano's results are shocking: over thirty major football awards, seven titles, about 800 goals in total, and over 130 in the Champions League. The number of his professional appearances is more than a thousand and growing. Another impressive fact is that during a couple of past years he manages to score a goal in every game with minimal help from his teammates.
Lionel Messi, called “the Atomic Flea” by the Spanish media, has been giving his fans much to talk about during the last couple of years. He's the start on and off the football field. Even though he had to skip some matches due to injury, Messi's stats speak for themselves. More than 700 goals, over 30 trophies, and over a dozen titles surely play for his benefit. He usually plays as a forward and captain for both the club and a national team. Due to his short growth in comparison with other taller footballers, he can successfully evade opponents' confrontations and his low gravity center contributes to higher mobility and balance.
