I'm totally with the article in general, I'm a die-hard anti-Cristiano and I praise the Messi-ah.

but on this one, I'm sorry, I can't help being objective

CRonaldo forceful heel is a very peculiar and remarkable goal, can't recall a comparable one
Messi one is a superb free-kick in the goal opposite top corner, like we see a handful every year.
The only stunning aspect of this one, is that it's a left-footer from the left!
Usually all such free-kicks from the box left corner, are right-footed with the ball arcing in (e.g., a Del Piero trade-mark)

OTOH Ronaldo needed quite a bit of luck for that to go in. He couldn't see who was behind him and it was at a saveable speed. A brilliantly brilliant goal, absolutely, but Messi's was utterly unstoppable.
