World Cup victory by Messi must be earned, according to Ronaldo, a Brazilian icon.

Lionel Messi must earn his chance at glory, according to Brazilian legend Ronaldo, who claims that despite his remarkable accomplishments, the Argentine captain does not deserve to win the World Cup.

When Argentina plays Croatia in Tuesday's semi-final, Messi will look to lead the Albiceleste to their sixth World Cup final after contributing a goal and an assist when they defeated the Netherlands on penalties in the last eight.

With six goal contributions, including four goals and two assists, the Paris Saint-Germain forward has taken on a talismanic role in Qatar. Only Kylian Mbappe, with five goals and two assists, has more.

Messi's World Cup triumph must be earned, says Brazil legend Ronaldo

Messi has contributed to goals and assists in three World Cup games overall and in two different contests this year. No player has accomplished this feat four times since 1966.

While applauding Messi's efforts, Ronaldo cautioned that the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner would not likely win the World Cup with ease.

"We're all due it. Ronaldo told reporters on Monday, "Nobody offers you anything, not even for your tale.

Argentina isn't playing brilliantly, but they work well as a team, are aggressive, and Messi is decisive when he gets close to the goal. He no longer sprints as much as he once did.

He used to take 30 acts at the start of his career; now, he only takes 10, but he is still decisive. He becomes a killer as soon as he has the ball and spots openings or enters the area.

"If Messi won the World Cup, would I be happy? Of course, I would be delighted for him, but Argentina and Brazil have a strong rivalry.

It would be hypocritical of me to claim that I would be glad for Argentina since that is untrue.

When he steps onto the pitch on Tuesday, Messi will match Lothar Matthaus' mark of 25 World Cup appearances. If he also scores, the 35-year-old will beat Gabriel Batistuta's record of 10 World Cup goals for the Albicelestes.

Argentina is still in the running for a third World Cup victory, but Brazil, one of their fiercest rivals, was eliminated in the quarterfinals after losing a nail-biting penalty shootout to Croatia.

Ronaldo does not believe that Neymar's choice to take Brazil's last and fifth penalty, "a kick which never arrived owing to Rodrygo and Marquinhos failing to convert," was a mistake.

I disagree with every theory around the penalty shootout, he declared.

"I believe that changing the sequence is incredibly delicate for you to approach a player and demonstrate your lack of faith in him by requesting that another player step up to take his place."

"That doesn't exist in football, in a group where everyone has full confidence in the coach and the nation," he continued.

"You arrive and ask to change, this is a great absurdity. Those who support this theory do not understand the dynamics of a group."
