CRISTIANO RONALDO WINS FIFTH BALLON D’OR TO EQUAL LIONEL MESSI

By

The Real Madrid star took home the prize after guiding his team to a La Liga and Champions League double in 2016-17

s the second straight year Ronaldo has won the award presented by France Football, and he was also named the Best FIFA Men’s Player of 2016-17 in October.

Ronaldo also took home the Ballon d’Or in 2008, 2013, and 2014

FIFA formerly awarded the Ballon d’Or in conjunction with France Football, but the two entities split their prizes last year.

The Portugal star was joined in the first 30  by six of his Real Madrid team-mates: Karim Benzema (25th place), Toni Kroos (17th), Marcelo (16th), Isco (12th), Sergio Ramos (sixth) and Modric (fifth).

Ronaldo has picked up where he left off last season in this year’s Champions League, scoring in all six of Madrid’s group-stage matches –a feet that has never been achieved before.

But he hasn’t matched that form in La Liga, netting just two times in 10 appearances thus far.
