Every season football fans see some special performances, goals and assists from the likes of Neymar, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kylian Mbappe and Kevin De Bruyne, but the debate over who is the world's top football star remains contested by two super-human athletes, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. For a number of years the two competed directly in Spain's La Liga, as they quickly became the only realistic contenders for some of the top awards and accomplishments in the sport, surging far beyond the abilities and records of most athletes across the globe.

With that question in mind, in this quiz, WhatCulture tests how well you know the Rosario revelation and the Madeira messiah.
