It would be impossible to talk about football without mentioning Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who have made headlines continuously for over a decade. Both players possess different talents, however, both players have made good use of this talent to make themselves the best players in the world. It might be impossible to witness another rivalry like that of Ronaldo and Messi, however, there are a lot of upcoming stars.
Kylian Mbappe is currently one of the best football youngsters. The French forward has already started setting several records which a lot of older and more experienced players are yet to do. At the age of 24, Mbappe has already become PSG’S highest goal scorer, and has become the hero of France national team.
Kylian Mbappe made headlines this week after he was made the captain of the France national team. This appointment has caused a lot of controversy as there are other players in the team who are older and more experienced.
However, one must understand that leadership is not all about age. Hence, in this article, I would be revealing the age at which Messi and Ronaldo were made the captains of the national team.
1. Ronaldo: The Portuguese forward is regarded as Portugal’s greatest player, he is also Portugal’s highest goal scorer. Ronaldo shows a lot of leadership qualities, and it is no surprise that he became Portugal’s captain in 2008, at the age of 23.
2. Messi: An international trophy was the only thing standing in the way of Messi being an Argentine legend like Maradona, however, after winning several international trophies including the World Cup, he has finally being accepted as an Argentine legend. Messi became Argentina’s captain few days after his 23rd birthday.
