The Portugal national side touched down at Sarajevo International Airport yesterday for their Euro 2012 play-off against Bosnia-Herzegovina tonight and the locals rolled out a little welcoming committee for a certain member of the squad – booing and chanting Lionel Messi’s name as Cristiano Ronaldo made his way through arrivals…

Which, all-in-all, probably isn’t the first thing you want to be greeted with after a 16-hour flight, though we all know why Ronaldo gets such a hard time everywhere he goes, don’t we kiddywinks? It’s because he’s classically handsome, is fantastically rich, secretes his own hair gel and is just plain-old better than everybody else.

      @CFC_Jay: That’s the first thing that came up when I googled ‘Lisbon to Sarajevo’ and my religion prevents me from fact-checking – I just choose to believe that they flew the ‘long way’ around the Earth.

  3. CFC_Jay says:

    lmao at the fact you googled Lisbon to Sarajevo!! My geography not that great but know Bosnia being in europe isnt too far from Portugal. Me thinks the route finder you used must have aked a london cabbie for directions, hahahahaha! made my day though mate so thanks for that :-)

    Well… he just is.

    Can anyone else do what he does? Why aren’t you playing for Real Madrid then?

    BTW I cant stand Real Madrid…

    say what you like about him in comparison with Messi but:

    – He has a better goals:games ratio at Real than Messi does at Barca
    – Has cracked more than one league
    – Has done something of note on the international stage (Euro 2004 final)

  6. Miguel says:

    So why are they chanting “Messi messi”?

    Do they hope that Ronaldo will perform as badly for his national team as Messi does?

    The joke never gets old: “How do you stop Messi? Put an Argentina shirt on him.”

  7. Ben says:

    Pretty retarded thing to do

  8. WildScotsman6 says:

    well in Bosnia-Herzegovina fans! Made the trip to the airport just to hate, takes dedication that… well in!

  9. Condekeh says:

    Messi is a very good player but, if you took him out of Barca, he is no match. He has never played for any club besides Barca, which is quite unlike C.Ronaldo. This unique human being(CR 7) has excelled in every league that he has played and he is still improving. For now it will be an understatement to say Messi is not good equally so, it is a curse on anyone not to accept and appreciate the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo.
    He is just superb.He improves by the minute of the clock

    messi – xavi – iniesta = robinho

  11. bih says:

    You people are just plain stupid, messi is better then ronaldo and that stupid guy who said portugal is gonna destroy bosnia u better watch that game tomm and let me know what happend. P.s. we got edin dzeko

  12. Mr. Sparkle says:

    16 hour flight? Flying from London to New York City takes about seven hours.

    That was fail Chris, utter fail.

  13. Abdool says:

    Why do they shout the name of a pretty much incomplete player who is simply ineffective without the world’s best midfield, at a player who is sure to make their National team look like the 104 kids from China?

  14. pato says:

    Ronaldo is a notch higher than Messi but haters dont know that!The plaudits he gets are from good midfielders around him and Ronaldo is sleek and cunny in every move.

  15. Ubietz888 says:

    LOL @ ‘break your leg tomorrow’

  16. the reason while he is bullied everywhere he goes is his arrogance and pomposity. on the contrary, messi is cool and humble. he does not talk anyhow no matter what anybody says about him. for instance, loose talks by pele.

  17. AT says:

    @MZ wouldn’t be too sure about BandH getting destroyed, Portugal only really have Nani,Ronaldo,FC.

  18. Jane says:

    they like messi becasue unlike c.ronaldo he is classically handsome, rich and has great hair.
