Messi scored twice as Albiceleste defeated France at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday.
The 35-year-old also converted in the dramatic penalty shootout at the end of the encounter.
Brazil was eliminated at the quarterfinal stage after suffering a penalty shootout defeat by Croatia.
But after the final, Ronaldo posted a photo of Messi lifting the trophy on Instagram and wrote: “This guy’s football throws any rivalry to the corner – even the historic one between Brazil and Argentina.
“I saw a lot of Brazilians and people from all over the world rooting for Messi in this electrifying final."
“A farewell worthy of the genius who, far beyond being a World Cup star, captained an era." I imagine my friend Diego’s party in heaven. Here, we are millions of all nationalities giving you a standing ovation. Congratulations Messi!”
Messi has now played his final World Cup match, having previously confirmed he would not be returning for the 2026 edition.
