Date of birth: 05.02.85
Club: Real Madrid
Scouted by Soccerjury
Captain of Portugal's Euro 2016 winning team. Multiple Ballon d'Or winner. Highest goal-scorer of all-time for Portugal. Often shares the title for best player in the world with Messi. Alex Ferguson stated: "he was the greatest player I ever worked with". Unplayable at times, bullying opposition defences with his flair, strength and speed. One of the marketable sportsman in the world. Averages an incredible a goal a game for Real Madrid. However, during his career he has been criticised by managers, fans, and even team-mates for being selfish and overly flamboyant. Does this diminish his claim to be the greatest?
