The fixture had been billed pre-match as an unmissable showdown between Messi and Ronaldo - a spectacle that turned out only to last until half-time, when both players were substituted in somewhat anti-climactic circumstances.

Certainly, it was the Argentinian...

Are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo friends? The two best players in the world went head-to-head again on Tuesday when Argentina met Portugal in a friendly and, naturally, the amateur body language experts were out in force to analyse their interactions.

In that spirit, let's take a look at the couple ourselves. First, in the Old Trafford tunnel, there appeared to be genuine affection between the two.
