What you are witnessing right now in Cristiano and Messi is something you probably won't witness again in a while and that is two genuine world class talents going at it to be the best in the world. They create a divide between many people as to who is better. Henry has NEVER EVER been considered the best footballer in the world and has never even won World or European Player of the Year (which in my opinion doesn't actually matter, but just bringing it up)
He was the best footballer in 03-04 and was robbed both Ballon d'Or and World Player of the Year awards.
