Here's What Happens When a Starting XI of Ronaldinho's Plays Against XI Cristiano Ronaldo's

​There is no denying that Ronaldinho is one of the greatest players to ever don a pair of boots.

The Brazilian enjoyed success as Barcelona's main man between 2004-2006, and at the peak of his talent he was destined to be one of the greats of the modern game.

Unfortunately for football fans around the world, the skillful Brazilian fell out of love with the game, leaving his career to peter out, resulting in him having spells back in Brazil with Flamengo and Fluminense. 

This made way for the rise of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, who are now the two best players on the planet and putting one before the other is cause of plenty of arguments between fans.

Now to the match between the two giants of the game. 

The game took place on Pro Evolution Soccer  (sorry FIFA players)  or PES for short, and produced some quite hilarious results. 

Team Ronaldo broke the deadlock, taking the lead in the 14th minute leaving goalkeeper Ronaldinho no chance in saving it. Team Ronaldo pressed on, and notched up another three goals before halftime, turning the game into men against boys, or so to speak.

However, after half time, the Ronaldinho's came together to give themselves a lifeline, scoring just after the hour mark. As the game continued, it was a process of seeing it out for the Team Ronaldo, which they did comfortably until one of the Ronaldinho's popped up with a late consolation goal, ending the the game 4-2.

So, what can we take from this? Ronaldo is better than Ronaldinho? No, what we can take is that both players are equally as good as each other regardless of the scoreline.

It's just a shame they never got to play together!
