The resemblance between Il Balilla Meazza and Il Fenomeno Ronaldo is impressive. Ronaldo's characteristics that most resemble Meazza are his explosiveness — the insane speed while dribbling — and, consequently, his 1v1 with the goalkeeper. Two centre-forwards with very high technical quality, tricks, change of direction, balance, speed and resistance. There are some differences, of course, as Meazza was far superior in the aerial game and had a much more incisive personality — vigour, determination, pressure — than Ronaldo, mainly in terms of his aggressive temperament. Ronaldo was a much calmer player, quieter on the field.
However, of all the similarities mentioned above, the 1v1 with the goalkeeper is by far the main one. Even feint's moves are similar. Incredibly similar players.
