Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH, known as Cristiano Ronaldo, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid C.F. and the Portugal national team.
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.
He also won the 2013–14 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award.
In January 2014, Ronaldo scored his 400th senior career goal for club and country aged 28.
Often ranked as the best player in the world, alongside rival Lionel Messi, and rated by some in the sport as the greatest of all time, Ronaldo is the first Portuguese footballer to win three FIFA/Ballons d'Or, and the second player to win three European Golden Shoe awards.
In January 2015, Ronaldo was named as the best Portuguese player of all time by the Portuguese Football Federation, during its 100th anniversary celebrations.
