Pele backing Messi to outshine Ronaldo at World Cup

Pele believes Barcelona star Lionel Messi can dominate the World Cup with Argentina.

Pele was asked about Messi's personal battle with Real Madrid and Portugal ace Cristiano Ronaldo.

"They are two different players," Pelé told Marca.

"I think Cristiano will depend on how his teammates perform. He is a player who scores lots of goals, but he needs the team. And Messi has plenty of good support, with Higuaín, Agüero... I think it will be easier for Messi to triumph."
