At the end of the year it is always fun to look back and remember all the great soccer moments that happened. There were a lot of moments and below are a few videos that display some of 2011’s most memorable soccer highlights.

Who is the better soccer player Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? Well, I think 90% of the world population agree Messi is the best in the world. However, Cristiano Ronaldo's skill, strength and athleticism is nothing to be ashamed of.
Cristiano Ronaldo, is in fact one of the best players to have played the game. He is a dominant force, and his skill, vision and speed of thought is impressive. Little Messi is just not of this world, and his amazing team that supports him is almost as impressive. Either you're a Messi fan or Cristiano Ronaldo fan, it's without a doubt they have given us some nice goals to watch. Messi leads the scoring table with 29 goals in 26 games. Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7) is right on Messi's heels with 25 goals in 27 games. (Numbers reflect goals in all tournaments and competitions up to date 11-25-2011).
