Cristiano Ronaldo crowned Fifa’s Best Player in 2016
Ronaldo was named Fifa’s Best Player in the World beating out rival Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann. Ronaldo has now been named the world’s best four times. While he beats out greats like Zidane and Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, he is still one behind Lionel Messi’s five trophy haul.
It was no surprise that Cristiano Ronaldo won the Best FIFA Men’s Player Award for 2016. His rival Lionel Messi didn’t even show up to the ceremony as he was likely aware that 2016 was not his year. Despite Messi having a great year, Ronaldo had his best year yet. His achievements include winning the Euros and Champions League and being the second lead scorer in Europe after Luis Suarez.
