With Lionel Messi now 35 years old and Cristiano Ronaldo 37, the two superstars are most likely playing their last ever FIFA World Cup. Qatar is, in all likelihood, the last chance for these incredible sportsmen to win football's biggest trophy and cement their legacy as the Greatest Player of All Time (GOAT).

Both Argentina and Portugal have strong squads and will be confident of a good showing. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, however, head into the tournament in contrasting forms.

The Argentina captain has been in fine form with his club side PSG and has managed an incredible 17 goal contributions (7 goals and 10 assists) in just 13 Ligue 1 appearances.

Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, has struggled for form and fitness this season. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has managed to score only 1 goal in 10 appearances in the Premier League.

The Portuguese superstar's club future has also been subject to intense speculation after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

With so much riding on this tournament, it will be interesting to see how the two legendary footballers perform in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
