Cristiano Ronaldo admitted Mohamed Salah could break his competitive edge and Messi in the race for the Golden Ball.
Over the years, the football world has witnessed Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi taking on the Golden Ball. Since 2008, two of the world’s top stars have been “divided”.
After the excellent season with Liverpool (scored 44 goals in all competitions), Mohamed Salah is expected to break the competition of C. Ronaldo and Messi. The CR7 also believes that the Egyptian star is fully capable of doing so.
Speaking to the press, the Portuguese “superstar” said: “Mohamed Salah is really the discovery of the year. I hope that injury in the Champions League final will not cause him to miss the 2018 World Cup.
Over the years, many have talked about the competition between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi in the race for the Golden Ball but other players have also had the chance to join the race. The Egyptian star is one of them. ”
Ronaldo also admitted Portugal will have difficulty in the 2018 World Cup with Spain. He added: “This kind of visit is not pleasant at all but we have to accept it. Failure in the battle will make the situation worse. Therefore, we will strive to have a smooth start. I believe both Spain and Portugal will win tickets. “
