...AND THREE SU­PER­STARS WHO’LL LOOK TO CE­MENT THEIR LEGACY

The Wharf - - World Cup Guide -

CRIS­TIANO RON­ALDO

Vy­ing with Lionel Messi to be the undis­puted best player of his gen­er­a­tion, the Por­tuguese star could also seal a place among the all-time greats if he could add a World Cup win­ner’s medal to his tri­umph at the 2016 Eu­ros.

LIONEL MESSI

He’s of­ten men­tioned in the same breath as the likes of Maradona and Pele... but they both brought the World Cup back to South Amer­ica, some­thing the fab­u­lously gifted Argentine has so far failed to do.

NEY­MAR

He scored 100 goals in Brazil by the time he was 20, starred for Barcelona and be­came the most ex­pen­sive player in his­tory with a £198m move to Paris Sain­tGer­main, but the at­tacker still needs a sig­na­ture tour­na­ment to en­ter the rar­i­fied air of Messi and Ron­aldo.
