Perhaps because tournament MVP isn’t the only metric to measure who has better international career?Which tournament was better than Messi's Copa?
Ronaldo's never been named the player of the tournament for any international tournament. Not even once. Messi has gotten it 3 times. Twice in the Copa and once in the World Cup.
I don't get how some people think he's clearly had the better international career.
For example, Xavi and Iniesta had never won any tournament MVP, yet no one would consider Modric, who has won WC MVP, having better international career than Xavi/Iniesta.
