Speaking after the Club World Cup win, Ronaldo described 2016 as his ‘dream year’.

We suffered a lot, but to win you have to suffer, and we ended the year in the best way,” he said.

“It’s a week of great joy, with the Ballon d’Or and this World Cup, a dream year. I want to thank my team-mates because without them Cristiano could not win the individual trophy he won.

It was an unforgettable year at a collective level and an individual level, we won the Champions League, [UEFA] Super Cup, European Championship [with Portugal] and now the World Cup, and a few days ago the Ballon d’Or.

Choosing one is difficult, but the European Championship had a little more of a special taste to it because it was the first time.”
