Cristiano Ronaldo, Again, Beats Lionel Messi To Become Player With Most Fixtures In 21st Century

Cristiano Ronaldo tops list while Lionel Messi secures fourth place

Cristiano Ronaldo reaffirmed his position as when the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) revealed the list of players with the most games played in the twenty-first century.

There is a narrative quality to numbers. Cristiano Ronaldo is not simply writing chapters in the vast story of football. His need for supremacy is causing him to write a whole story according to Essentially Sports.

As he ascended to the throne of the twenty-first century, football players made an appearance—an achievement as significant as his standing. But his victory isn’t the only focus of the tale. It tells the story of how the Argentine great Lionel Messi just missed getting to the podium.

With 1204 official appearances, Al-Nassr ace Cristiano Ronaldo is ranked highest on the official list published by the IFFHS. At teams like Sporting CP, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, Al-Nassr, and the Portugal NT, the 38-year-old superstar has made a lasting impression. 

Ronaldo has travelled a path marked by unflinching perseverance and determination. The Portuguese celebrity’s latest achievement demonstrates his extraordinary talent. With an astounding 22 years of straight 52-match seasons under his belt, he is 38 years old and shows no signs of slowing down.

After being long associated with Cristiano Ronaldo in the competition for the top spot, Lionel Messi now finds himself lower on the hierarchy. With 1,047 games played while wearing the jerseys of Barcelona, PSG, Inter Miami, and the Argentine National Team, the Inter Miami star took fourth place on the list.
