Messi or Ronaldo can’t win 2022 World Cup

Messi or Ronaldo can't win 2022 World Cup
Ronaldo-Messi

Both great players fans will call me crazy if I said “Messi or Ronaldo can’t win 2022 the world cup”. But the first basic question around the world is that will they play next world cup? Will their fitness will allow them to play 2022 world cup? Ronaldo will be 37 and Messi will be 35 during 2022 world cup. Will they be part of their teams? Their fitness will be declining in the next few years. Will they retire before the world cup? We are analyzing both players to check our statement that “Messi or Ronaldo can’t win 2022 world cup”

Facing Competition

If both of them do not retire before the world cup they face great competition in their respective teams. Many young players want to take their place in the team. Argentina has a lot, of good young forwards who can be the heroes of the nation in a single night by playing a single good game. His fitness level should be quite high if he wants to play in 2022. 

It is the same case with Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala is in a race to replace of Ronaldo.  Ronaldo’s injury in 2016 UFFA France final had a great effect in running. He might lose his position in the team. Both have a 50% chance to play world cup.  I love both of them and want to see both of them play some part in the next world cup. 

Should Both play next world cup

The world cup is not about any individual player, it’s about men’s national team of FIFA. We have to wait  four years to view the championship.  We all want to see the best players in action. All nations want to be the champions. France became champion in 2018 in Russia and the whole country welcomed them.  The whole world is waiting for this championship in anticipation who will be the best 32 of the world. 

So far such a kind of prestige tournament what kind of team will be selected by the coaches. Will they go for young legs? or will experience matter in the selection.Or will, they considered both?  Will age matter? or will experience win?

So there are three questions that matter in the selection of team. 

  1. Talent
  2. Age
  3. Experience
  4. Fitness
    Both of them are the best talents in the world, we have no doubt about that. Same is the case with experience which is massive. There are few players in the world experienced like them. But is it the best age to participate in the world cup. Will this age factor deteriorate their fitness. Are they over experienced?  We analyze data is taken from article  “Does Age has impact  in winning world cup” on this website.

Look at the last ten winning team ages. There is only one exception in 2014 one player at the age of 34 from France who won the cup. Costa Rica is runner up which has 4 players at the age of 34.  

So Messi has a chance but Ronaldo should not be part of the team if we compare their ages  but his team will take a chance on him. His ratio is 1:10 to win world cup. Aged above 32 only two forwards are part of winning team so it also decreases chances of Messi too. 

Experience impact on winning world cup

Ronaldo has played more than 115 international matches with more than 78 goals. Messi has played 112 matches with more than 49 international goals. Does experience count in winning the world cup? Does experience matter t all in winning world-cup? How much does experience matter? Looking at the data of the last ten world cup winning teams of the forwards fielded by their teams.

Result

The results clearly show that in 2014 two forwards with such kind of experiences as Messi and Ronaldo have can win the world cup. People called over experienced for such huge event. From 50 forwards of winning world cup teams only two forwards had such kind of experience.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
