Pele picks Messi ahead of Ronaldo as world's most complete player

Pele picks Messi ahead of Ronaldo as world's most complete player

Argentina, with their top star leading the way, Lionel Messi, headed on Thursday from Palma de Mallorca to Saudi Arabia to face Brazil at the King Saud University stadium in Ryiad.

The Barcelona forward, 32, was later handed a three-month ban for saying the tournament was "corrupt".

But after failing to score in five games at the 2018 World Cup finals, the Manchester City forward was dropped and had to fight hard to get back into coach Tite's plans.

"He's a great player, but we've faced Argentina in the past and this time isn't going to be any different". Brazil held on to a draw as defender David Luiz was despatched off within the closing minutes of the sport.

"Brazil is always strong. My confidence was high because of this and it was a very good Copa America". We are more unified as a team, there is no doubt.

Argentina are on a five-match unbeaten streak and most recently beat Ecuador 6-1 last month, while Brazil have not won in their last four games. "If we were in a team together, the opponents would have to worry about two players, not just one!".

He has, however, answered many of those since returning to Brazil, with Pele suggesting that a man who has recorded 64 goals across the last two campaigns could make his mark overseas.

A Superclasico clash with Argentina - for whom City team-mates Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi figure - takes place in Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh on Friday, before a meeting with South Korea at the Mohamed bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

During the hearing, Powell restated his position that negative interest rates would not be appropriate for the USA economy. Manufacturing and business investment continue to lag. "The outlook is still a positive one".


As soon as once more the South American rivals confronted off in a pleasant match on the Melbourne Cricket Floor in Melbourne.

"But Brazil is Brazil, and we showed it during our Copa America win".

"People criticise him. Even I did it a few times but we forget that he is a product of ours, of the nursery of Santos".

"I don't ask for shirts, I usually swap them, but I asked Zidane once". Now I defend my country, and they their own country.

"The Argentina game is a derby and it doesn't matter if one team is ahead of the other one, it's a big rivalry".

Neymar will be absent again through injury, but Jesus says the Paris Saint-Germain frontman, who has 61 goals in 101 games for his country, has set the benchmark for him.

Man City goalkeeper Ederson is also sidelined through injury.

Selecao star Neymar became the most expensive player in history when he moved from Barca to PSG in 2017, but for Pele there is a clear standout among the trio.
