Big Question: How is the World Cup going to be played without the Big Two?
- Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will not be playing the World Cup this year.
- Without these two, the World Cup had undoubtedly lost its headline acts
- This is the major highlight of the game as football’s biggest prize remained elusive for both of them
- This goes to show that football involves a lot of teamwork and not individuals alone
- The team that wins this tournament will be the truest team of the sense of teamwork
- Football these days has sadly moved to more of cults and iconic figures, than that of teamwork, determinations and coordination
- The Ballon d’Or meant nothing before until Messi and Ronaldo both grabbed 10 each and climbed to the top in Forbe’s rich lists for various endorsements
- Winning the Ballon d’Or equates to not teamwork, but only individual efforts
- Within every winning team, there will be a standout player, but that does not mean that he did it alone
