Ronaldo fans had an absolute field day with Messi's penalty miss
Also, is it just us, or has there already been A LOT of penalties in this World Cup?
After Ronaldo's incredible performance on Friday, including that jaw-dropping free kick in the 87th minute, all eyes were on Messi's game on Saturday.
Despite eleven attempts, Messi failed to score once, including one penalty that was saved by the Iceland keeper.
Fans who have been mentally pitting Ronaldo and Messi against each other in their minds couldn't help but take to Twitter to use this opportunity to put an end to the 'Who Is Better?' debate once and for all.
Y'all can't really compare Ronaldo's international performances with Messi's without acknowledging that before yesterday, Ronaldo had 3 total goals in 3 World Cups.

I’m no expert but: Ronaldo scored three goals against maybe the best team in the world, Messi got played to a stalemate by a nation smaller than Staten Island. #WorldCup18

However, some viewers did correctly point out that neither Ronaldo nor Messi were the ones to focus on in this debate:
In 2016, Iceland tied against Portugal, 1-1. Ronaldo took 10 shots, no goals. Today, Iceland tied Argentina, 1-1. Messi took 11 shots, no goals
Ronaldo and Messi vs. Iceland: 21 shots conceded, no goals.

Messi and Ronaldo have now both tied 1-1 vs. Iceland in major international competitions so please remember to put the entire nation of Iceland in your GOAT convos
