There has always be a big debate on who is a better footballer from Argentina Lionel Messi or Diego Maradona? Some fans say Diego Maradona is far better then Lionel Messi, and the reason is that Diego Maradona has won the F.I.F.A world cup held in Mexico in the year 1986. But Diego Maradona is also famous for winning the title in Italy with Napoli, and with Boca Juniors in Argentina. But Diego Maradona had played two years with F.C. Barcelona, but he never won the champion league with Barcelona. He was a cocaine addict during his time at Napoli in Italy, famous for his nightlife in Naples, along with the Brazilian football Caracca, coming late for traing, he is very famous for his play acting on the pitch. Diego Maradona was thrown out of the world cup in the year 1994 in the U.S.A, for failing a drug test for ephedrine . Lionel Messi on the other hand has won four champion League trophies and nine La Liga trophies. Yes I admit that Lionel Messi has not won a world cup with Argentina , but he took Argentina to the finals against Germany in the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Lionel Messi is the top Argentina goal scorer with 81 , eighty one goals, he ha now over taken Gabriel Batistuta as Argentina's top goal scorer.
