Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo scoops FIFA Best Male Player award

Alvaro Morata Deportivo Coruna Real Madrid La Liga 26042017

"Matching Cristiano to Messi in Ballon d'Ors is an unprecedented aberration that should embarrass the lords of FIFA, UEFA and France Football".

The governing body of world football, FIFA, presented the 2017 FIFA Best Football awards in a glittering ceremony at the Palladium stadium in London on Sunday.

"Thank you to all the coaches but especially the players, this is all yours".

Kiko Casilla had to be at his best six minutes later, as the Real shot-stopper reacted well to keep out Joan Jordan's free-kick. "We lacked fluency in this game but the important thing is that we have won and kept the clean sheet".

The Real Madrid superstar beat rivals Lionel Messi and Neymar to win the crown for a fifth time and the second year in a row.

"I will never stop trying to do that". "This is a great moment for me".

Kane scored twice in yesterday's 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool to take his season's tally to 13 in all competitions.

Ronaldo's triumph stole the show, however, the 32-year-old receiving recognition for another stellar year in which he won both the Champions League and LaLiga with Real Madrid.

Eibar kept going in the second half and Jose Luis Mendilibar's team should have had a penalty when Casemiro stepped on Takashi Inui in the area.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was honoured as the top head coach.

Arsenal's Olivier Giroud picked up the Puskas Award for his striker for Arsenal against Crystal Palace on new year's day, while Celtic supporters were awarded the FIFA Fan Award.

The Fair Play award went to Francis Kone for saving the life of goalkeeper Martin Berkovec, who nearly suffocated as a result of swallowing his tongue during a Czech league match in February.
