Rodrygo Goes, the young star player of Real Madrid, sparked a huge controversy after fighting with Lionel Messi and Rodrigo De Paul during the 2026 World Cup qualifiers match between Brazil and Argentina. Now, Cristiano Ronaldo might be part of this story.
In a new scandal with the Brazilian police at Maracana Stadium, Argentine fans were brutally attacked without mercy or consideration. Both Messi and Rodrygo immediately reacted.
While Lionel Messi decided to lead his teammates asking them to leave the field and go to the locker room until the Brazilian police stopped beating the Argentine fans, Rodrygo pointed at the Argentine squad by supposedly calling them cowards.
“We are world champions. Why are we cowards? Keep your mouth shut. Watch your mouth, kid,” would have been Messi’s answer to Rodrygo, according to a video posted by Fox Sports.

“Happy weekend everyone!” posted CR7 on Instagram and the first public message Rodrygo sent him after the clash with Messi was two emojis: a goat and a face with heart eyes.
In other words, after the scandal with Leo, the Brazilian forward pointed to Cristiano as the greatest player of all time with the GOAT symbol. By the way, Vinicius Jr also left his mark on the post.
