The duo have also bettered each other and pushed each other to go where no footballer has gone before - breaking records, making new ones, and wowing every football fan. No, you can't just "appreciate them both", you have to pick a side.

It won't be an easy task for either player, too, with both Argentina and Portugal flying to Russian Federation will relatively weak squads for their reputation and histories. Is the great player he who elevates teams into the pantheon through moments of breathtaking individual brilliance or he who, like a conductor, orchestrates the team for a song of victory? Argentina suffered a heart-breaking loss in the final to Germany in extra time at World Cup 2014 in Brazil, and they'll be focused on getting back to the final this tournament.

"For me Messi is an extension of Maradona".

Injury robbed them of their first-choice goalkeeper, Manchester United's Sergio Romero, and there was another setback when Manuel Lanzini, the West Ham United forward, was ruled out of the tournament after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament.

Whether or not the history books will be kind to Messi may just hinge on the performance of his team at the World Cup in Russian Federation.
