I don't even get excited for the World Cup anymore. I much prefer the Euros
I'm not really sure if that's true, World cup is still the most important cup in football and many players would prefer to win that. Maybe some Europeans but defintely not the majority. World cup happens every 4 years and the champions league happens every year which kind of makes the World cup more prestigious.
It won't be invalid, if he wins a world cup, I don't think anyone would disagree with him being the GOAT. If he at least performs in a World cup, I will consider him the GOAT, until then it is Maradona imo.
Btw 1 world cup>2 champions league.
