Cristiano Ronaldo Eclipse Messi’s FIFA Ballon d’or Records
Cristiano Ronaldo has won 2017 FIFA Best Player of the year award following a successful 2016/17 season with both club and country. This is his fifth Ballon d’or award eclipsing Messi’s record. Ronaldo won the La Liga and a back-to-back Champions League with Real Madrid last season and was also the competition’s goal scorer. He also inspired Portugal to their first ever European Championship title and this made him a clear favourite ahead of Messi and Neymar.
