As expected.

Cristiano Ronaldo has officially won the FIFA 2017 The Best award. He was also the reigning The Best, meaning that this is the second consecutive time he's won the award.

Ronaldo was expected to win this award after Madrid conquered La Liga and the Champions League title last season. Los Blancos managed to get a record-breaking double and Ronaldo was the undisputed leader of the team, so this award will not come by itself and he will almost surely win the Ballon D'Or as well.

Ronaldo has been struggling so far this season and he will need to perform better if Madrid want to succeed this year. Still, fans should remember what he did for the club last season and it s clear that he's still capable of being one of the most dangerous offensive players in European football. The Portuguese star will also compete in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and Portugal want to prove that their Euro title was no fluke.
