He says this
The common bond is a defining moment. Di Stefano won five European Cups with Real Madrid, scoring in every final. With Maradona, it’s the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. For Van Basten, that volley against Russia to help win the 1988 European Championship.
If scoring two goals to win the World Cup for France in 1998 wasn’t enough for Zidane, four years later against Bayer Leverkusen at Hampden Park he conjured a volley from the gods — possibly the greatest goal in the Champions League era — to give Real their ninth European Cup.
Messi sits easily alongside them. He, remember, has scored goals to clinch two Champions League finals, strikes in Rome and at Wembley that glossed all his other extraordinary achievements. I’ve always felt the greatest need those distinguishing moments.
Do not take my argument as a criticism of Ronaldo. He is a player for whom I have the utmost admiration and I can’t wait to see him in action on Sunday in El Clasico, the biggest game in football. Real and Barcelona always have the best players in the business.
