No more Messi and Ronaldo: Lyrics
Here are the lyrics of the viral ‘No more Messi and Ronaldo’ song.
No more Messi and Ronaldo, There is no one in Qatar now

Argentina time to celebrate, Do like Martinez and get ready to dance
Thank you to Kylian Mbappe, His brother Hakimi
Suarez and Modric, Neymar, Kim, Embolo, Bale
And also this guy, Embarassing like
The country of mine, Did not qualify
Who are soccer’s next big stars?
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated the world of soccer for more than 15 years. Messi and Ronaldo first went head-to-head during the 2007 Ballon d’Or award, which was won by Brazilian legend Kaka. Ronaldo finished second while Messi finished third. From 2008 to 2017, the winner of the Ballon d’Or award, which is considered to be the highest individual prize in soccer, was either Messi or Ronaldo.
However, both Messi and Ronaldo have reached almost the end of their careers. Ronaldo, who is going to turn 38 next month, is currently playing in Saudi Arabia-based club Al-Nassr. Messi, 35, is still playing in Europe at the highest level for his club PSG. While the chapter of Messi and Ronaldo is slowly coming to an end, a new era has begun where new soccer stars have started to emerge.
While there are many great upcoming soccer stars, the two players who are considered to be the heirs to the throne of Messi and Ronaldo are none other than Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. Both players are in their early twenties, but they have already racked up some incredible numbers. Mbappe, who is Messi’s teammate at PSG, has already won the World Cup with France in 2018.
Despite being just 24, Mbappe is already PSG’s all-time second-top-scorer in all competitions. Meanwhile, Haaland has already taken the world by storm after his performances for his club, Manchester City. Although Messi and Ronaldo still have a few years left in their careers, Mbappe and Haaland have already started to dominate the new era, and they are already threatening to break the records set by Messi and Ronaldo.
