Ronaldo has been going through a goal scoring slump of late.His lack of goals this season led to him being booed at the Bernabeu by the fans in the last Real Madrid game – because they were upset that he wasn’t churning out the goals as usual.And instead of striking the usual terror into the hearts of goalkeepers and defenders when he thundered towards them some of them of late have been actually spotted yawning instead.
So retaining the FIFA World Player of the year title that he won in 2016 will cheer him up a good bit.
He got 43.16% of the total vote which summed up his brilliant run last season – where he won the Champions League and the La Liga double with Real Madrid.
FIFA has shifted its award ceremony from its usual January slot to October so players are judged across a season — based on the typical European schedule — rather than the calendar year.
Messi,Neymar,Ronaldo ( the other one),Maradona etc were all present at the glittering ceremony which was held in England this year.
