For the second time in a row and third time overall, Portugal and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo was crowned as the best player on the planet after an incredible season that included the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup for Real Madrid.

Cristiano became the first Portuguese player to achieve the biggest award 3 times in his career, beating fellow nominees Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer to this year’s award. Cristiano’s brilliant 2014 included 31 goals in 30 matches in Spain’s La Liga – a haul that saw him finish as the 2013/14 top scorer – as well as a record 17 goals in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League campaign.
