Cristiano Ronaldo retained his crown as FIFA men’s player of the year in London on Monday night.
The Real Madrid and Portugal superstar was against Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and PSG star Neymar for the award he won last year.
The ceremony, which took place at the London Palladium, is the second since the Fifa award once again split from France Football’s Ballon d’Or prize.
Messi has hit 50 goals for Barca and Argentina while Neymar, the world’s most expensive player after he left Barcelona for PSG in the summer, has 25 goals to his name for Barca, PSG and Brazil.
The winners are decided by a jury of club and international coaches, media representatives and fans.
