The world's best two footballers, Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd die-hard Rooney fans would argue about the statement, but they're blind!) are about to go head to head even before a single ball is kicked in the Primera Liga.
The UEFA has announced that the pair of them are challenging to become Europe's best player and are at the moment neck and neck.
The European Gay Footballers Association has also announced that Ronaldo and Messi are leading their vote for the most "hunky" footballer too, but are not quite as close, because it seems that most European gay soccer players prefer Ronaldo's shaven legs to Lionel Messi's interfering mum!
Actually, Ronaldo and Messi feel quite honoured to be "Gay Icons" because their predecessor, David Beckham, was quite tasty in his Armani days in a gay way!
There is a dark-horse running too and his name is Balotelli; he has no chance of winning UEFA's title, but he is rapidly closing in on the gay title especially when he tightens his six-pack and whips out his pistol!
