In 2014 in Brazil, Argentina were beaten by Germany in the final, and should Mourinho's prediction comes true, then Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will go head to head.
Despite winning all major trophies at their clubs, these two players who are regarded as the best footballers in the world have never lifted the World Cup title.
