The sons of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi also have tough competition just like their fathers.

Cristiano Ronaldo said that he was done with Lionel Messi's rivalry last year. The two superstars are heading towards retirement and no longer participate in European competitions. To the delight of football supporters, however, the successors to Ronaldo and Messi are emulating their predecessors and igniting a brand-new competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, the son of CR7, won the U-13 Saudi Premier League this season after joining Al Nassr last year. Can Thiago, Messi's son, follow closely behind? Thiago just expanded his collection with an Easter International Cup.

Who then has a noteworthy trophy cabinet? Let's find out.

With no margin for an opponent to win the silverware, Al Nassr's U-13 team, captained by Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, won the Saudi Premier League table in February 2024, according to Essentially Sports.

Later, Cristiano Jr received his first Saudi League trophy at the end of the season in March. Notably, this is the 13-year-old's lone junior trophy. He has participated in youth teams for major leagues like Real Madrid and Juventus.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi’s son Thiago was trophyless when Cristiano Jr lifted his first title. However, the trophy drought was short-lived. Thiago Messi’s decisive goal in the Weston Cup final in February was instrumental in propelling Inter Miami to win the tournament.

With the Weston Cup win, Thiago has matched up with Cristiano Jr. And now, the 12-year-old has surpassed Ronaldo’s son.

Thiago’s recent Easter International Cup win saw him add a second silverware to his cabinet.

As of now, Thiago Messi has won two titles to Cristiano Jr’s one Saudi Premier League title. Interestingly, Thiago Messi has mirrored his father, who has a better trophy cabinet than Cristiano Jr’s father.
