    It is clear that the conditions are different, each epoch has its advantages and disadvantages. Messi in the 60s would be smaller because he had not received the medical treatment of growth, he would have suffered several injuries and play with 500 grams boots, doubly heavy balls, uneven fields, etc.
    However, one can compare the dominance and transcendence of each one in his time, in that aspect, it is clear that Pele has an advantage.

    To answer OP's question:

    Its not even a discussion. Pele = 3 World Cups. Messi = 0

    Pele also wasnt a scrub at the Club level either. He won the Libertadores with Santos.
