Cristiano Ronaldo will be vying for the 2017 The Best FIFA Men’s Player award with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and World Football’s most expensive signing, Neymar.

Cristiano has already thumped Messi enough since last season. Aside from winning the major team achievements in the 2016/17 campaign, the Madeira born legend also won the UEFA Best Player of the Year award and the 2017 Supercopa de Espana.
Scooping the crown would see the iconic number 7 defend his title, won in 2016. The 2017 FIFA Football Awards event is scheduled for the London Palladium, England on October 23. As CR7 fans, we wish the boss luck.
