The meaning behind the photo
The two legendary players are picture together playing chess with both locked in concentration about what their next move should be. But the meaning is much deeper that just that.
The chess pieces on the board of Messi and Cristiano exactly repeat the position of the pieces in one of the games between Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura in 2017.
That game ended in a draw, and that is the best way to describe the competition between Ronaldo and Messi in the football world.
Both kick off their World Cup campaigns in the coming days. Messi and his Argentina team-mates take on Saudi Arabia on November 22, while Ronaldo and Portugal face Ghana on November 24.
