Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi: Whose international career is better?

The Euro After Dark crew discuss whether Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are true successes without international triumphs.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo: you can't have a debate about their greatness without comparing them to each other. Much like the Joker and Batman, polar opposites who are defined in each other's image, we've come to assess Messi and Ronaldo against each other, not in a vacuum but as a tandem. It's the privilege and curse that comes with being the two best players on the planet right now.

We were reminded of this dynamic at the start of Euro 2016, when Iceland defender Kari Arnason pointedly...

Euro and Copa America remind us why international football stirs emotions

With Argentina's Lionel Messi announcing his retirement from the international game, we all can't quite help but ask, what if?
ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Steve Nicol predict the Euro 2016 quarterfinal fixtures.

Anthony Richardson recaps the Copa America Centenario final, including the most memorable moments from New Jersey.

Now that the 2016 Copa America has come to an end, we asked our writers to reflect on its highs and lows.


Tim Vickery: I enjoyed Argentina's semifinal display in the 4-0 win vs. the U.S. and Chile's 7-0 quarterfinal rout of Mexico immensely; they were magnificent team performances. But in terms of a game involving two teams, I think I might have to go with Ecuador 2-2 Peru. The Peruvians started out like a train, with Ecuador straining to get back in it.

Jeff Carlisle: Argentina 2-1 Chile: This...

Argentinian fans express sadness following Lionel Messi's retirement from international football.

Argentina great Diego Maradona, who earlier in the week was sympathetic about the Albiceleste Copa America final loss to Chile, on Wednesday changed tack and said that the 1986 World Cup-winning team were far superior. 

The 1986 World Cup is highly regarded as the setting where Maradona sealed his legacy as an all-time great. Many have attributed Argentina's second World Cup title single-handedly to Maradona's performance.

"For us, we become an even greater team with each second that passes...
