He is a forward and serves as captain for Portugal.
By the age of 22, Ronaldo had received Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations.
The following year, in 2008, he won his first Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards.
He followed this up by winning the FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2013 and 2014.
