Sao Paulo - Romario and Ronaldo are at odds over the World Cup in Brazil, criticizing each other's conflicting comments about what the tournament means to the country's population.
Ronaldo, a member of the local organizing committee, says the World Cup brings nothing but benefits to the Brazilian people. Romario, an outspoken congressman, complains about the misuse of public funds with the tournament as an excuse.
The former Brazil greats and World Cup champions didn't hold back when given a chance to attack each other off the field.
When asked about Romario's criticism of the tournament, Ronaldo said "it's easy to be the opposition and just attack everyone."
Romario went to Twitter to respond, attacking his former teammate for being part of the "corrupt entities" of FIFA and the local organizing committee.
