Even Lionel Messi knows Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest, Piers Morgan reveals

Piers Morgan claimed that ‘even Messi knows’ that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest footballer in history after sharing a hilarious picture on Thursday night.

Ronaldo scored in Portugal’s 3-2 victory over Ghana on Thursday, becoming the first player ever to score in five consecutive World Cup competitions.

As Ronaldo celebrated his goal against Ghana with his trademark ‘SIU’ celebration, he wandered in-front of a banner featuring Lionel Messi and Morgan took the opportunity to share the moment with a cleverly worded caption.

Taking to his social media on Thursday, Morgan wrote: “Even Messi knows” with a goat emoji added at the end to represent the acronym; greatest of all time.

Ronaldo will be hoping to add to his tally when Portugal take on Uruguay in their next group stage encounter.
