MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: Skills & Golazos] You won't regret spending six minutes watching this montage of myriad clips comparing the magical moves of Argentines Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona.

Messi made his pro debut in 2003, five years after Maradona retired. These highlights include Maradona with Boca Juniors, Napoli, Barcelona and Argentina -- and Messi with Barca and Argentina.

If you think they might reveal who was the most spectacular, chances are the conclusion will be a tie.

    The answer is "YES". Different times and both spectacular. I do like Maradona's hair better.

    What a difference it makes when you don't dive.

    Valerie, I agree. How many times did either player get taken down only to pop up faster than anyone else and continue on their way. I think both players' ability to stay on their feet (and continue to dribble) while being physically challenged were crucial aspects to their brilliance. What a pleasure to watch.
