As a Lionel Messi fan, I’ll argue till I turn red in the face about why the Barcelona and Argentine national team forward is the best soccer player in the world right now, holding off Real Madrid and Portugal international star Cristiano Ronaldo.

And while I’ll point out different facts and will keep things cordial, two friends in Nigeria didn’t follow the same mentality, because one actually ended up killing his buddy with a fucking shard of broken glass while debating the two soccer players.

Here’s how it all went down, according to Hindustan Times and via Deadspin:

Police said the man who was killed, Obinna Michael Durumchukwa, 34, was celebrating his birthday with his friend Nwabu Chukwuma, 22, at a rented flat, when they started to argue over who the better player was — the Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo or his counterpart at Barcelona, Lionel Messi. Durumchukwa flung a glass at Chukwuma, which missed him and broke against the wall. Chukwuma then picked up a shard of glass and cut his friend’s throat in a fit of rage, said police inspector, Kiran Kabadi of Tulinj station.

Sooo, yeah, I’ll never argue about the CR7-Messi debate ever again after hearing this news. People are nuts, guys.
