Cristiano Ronaldo wins FIFA Best Player Award
FIFA superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has won one of professional soccer’s most prestigious awards – the FIFA Best Player Award. He edged out long time rival Lionel Messi by earning over one third of the vote whereas Messi only got a quarter of the final vote. Ronaldo had an incredibly memorable year in 2016 with forty two goals in forty four games as well as many unbelievable clutch moments as well. He won his fourth Ballon d’Or, he scored three goals in the Club World Cup, he won the shoot out to win the champions league and those were just the very top highlights for Ronaldo. Ronaldo feels that this was his best year so far in all of his legendary years that he has had and that says a lot.
Other winners in the soccer world include: Carli Lloyd for Best Woman’s Player, Claudio Ranieri for Best Men’s Coach, Silvia Neid for Best Woman’s Coach, Mohd Faiz Subri for the Puskas Award (best goal), and Atletico Nacional for the Fair Play Award. Congratulations to all!
