As we all stared in awe, Lionel Messi made history by achieving the golden prize any footballer can dream of. He got the Ballon d’Or for the year 2012 beating counterparts Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta.
I was cheering for Ronaldo since he contributed a lot to Los Blancos and the Portugal International team. It was inevitable though, Messi had it in his grasp. I still feel that it was a bit unfair since Messi did not do anything significant in International football and hence is still not as good as Cristiano Ronaldo in my eyes, I’d love to see him prove me wrong though.
