Ronaldo Named FIFA Ballon d’Or ‘World Player Of The Year 2014
The greatest individual feat in football in 2014 was Cristiano Ronaldo’s 17 Champions League goal-haul that smashed the scoring record for one season in the competition and helped Real Madrid finally land the their 10th European Cup- La Decima.
For so long Ruud van Nistelrooy’s 12 goal-campaign for Manchester United in 2003 had set the bar but then first Messi with 15 and Ronaldo with 17 took the standard to new levels.
Ronaldo did so in a year when Real Madrid finally became the first side in football to win 10 European Cups. He did it when the pressure and expectation were on him and that’s why the Portuguese won the Ballon d’Or.
