There are certain topics that will forever debated in the world of soccer. Which league is the best? Is MLS a vacation destination? What are the advantages of pro/rel? Of course, one of the fiercest debates pits Christiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi.

Both European stars have shown that they are dynamic game-changers; Ronaldo with his incredible free kick abilities and Messi with his knack for scoring from every angle. Every soccer fan has his/her own thoughts on the matter, including the New England Revolution’s Charlie Davies.

Ronaldo recently made headlines when he said, "Maybe in your opinion Messi is better than me, but in my mind I am better than him." It’s a bold statement, but one that Davies is willing to second.

"He has the pedigree to back that up," Davies said of Ronaldo on ESPN FC. "He’s won the titles, he has the Golden Boot. For me, he’s the best, when he’s in form."

Davies’ comments surprised his fellow commentators. Regardless, the striker remained firm in his position.
