Ronaldo vs Messi career trophies: 31 with Portugal + 4 clubs vs 34 with Barca

Ronaldo won 31 trophies with Portugal and 4 different clubs. Messi won 34 with Barcelona

Cristiano Ronaldo won his second major international title as Portugal edged out the Netherlands 1-0 in the final of the UEFA Nations League at the Estadio do Dragao last night.

The Portuguese talisman has now won two out of the three finals he has played for his national side, winning the 2016 UEFA Euro in France and now the inaugual UEFA Nations League. The only setback Ronaldo has faced in a final for Portugal was back in 2004, when Greece beat them in the 2004 Euro final.

In contrast, Ronaldo’s arch-rival Lionel Messi’s international career with Argentina has never really taken off. Despite carrying Argentina to four finals on the international stage, Messi has failed to deliver for his national side when it mattered the most
