Brazil football legend Ronaldo da Lima has snubbed Real Madrid/Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo from his list of all time XI best players preferring to include Lionel Messi instead.
Ronaldo included a couple of his iconic Brazil team-mates with full-backs Cafu and Roberto Carlos getting the nod. There are just two players who Ronaldo never got the chance to play against who made his line-up – and it is no surprise that they are Diego Maradona and Pele. See the list after the cut.
Defenders: Cafu, Paolo Maldini, Fabio Cannavaro, Roberto Carlos
Midfielders: Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, Andrea Pirlo, Lionel Messi
Strikers : Pele, Ronaldo Da Lima
