Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi, has waded into the Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo debate.
The superstar footballers have won five Ballon d’Or prizes each and reached the 600-goal milestone in their respective careers.
The Super Eagles Media Team has been asking players at the Africa Cup of Nations in quick-fire interview sessions, who they think is the better footballer.
Captain John Mikel Obi went for Messi and Iwobi agrees.
“Difficult but for me Messi,” Iwobi said.
The Hale End Academy product faced Messi in the round of 16 of the Champions League in 2016 and was in the Nigeria side that lost 2-1 to Argentina at the 2018 World Cup.
