Published

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are now both just one win away from meeting each other in the World Cup quarter-final.

Following their last-gasp victory over Nigeria on Tuesday, Lionel Messi’s Argentina qualified for the knockout stages and will therefore play France in the first round-of-16 tie on Saturday in Kazan (3pm UK time).

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal meanwhile ensured their progression yesterday and will play Uruguay in Saturday’s second round-of-16 tie in Sochi (7pm UK time).

As both teams finished second, they have the chance to meet in the quarter-finals, as the winners of their two round-of-16 ties will face off on July 6 in Nizhny Novgorod (3pm UK time).

The famous rivals have played against each other on numerous occasions in past El Clasico club matches, as well as some international friendlies.

However, they have never faced each other on the biggest stage of all before – at the World Cup.

Both teams have tough last 16 ties to overcome, but should they manage to do so, then this could be the match to settle the ‘GOAT’ debate once and for all.
