Cristiano Ronaldo Wins Prestigious Golden Foot 2020 Award

Cristiano Ronaldo won the prestigious Golden Foot 2020 award on Sunday night in Monaco for his outstanding performance over the previous season. He netted the ball on 44 occasions in 44 games and helped Juventus top Group G in the ongoing UEFA Champions League.

In keeping with the tradition, Ronaldo placed his foot on the cement to leave an imprint on it. And his award comes with no surprise as the 35-year-old has netted 44 times for club and country this calendar year, with Lewandowski being the only player ahead of him, albeit by three goals.

The Golden Foot Award for Ronaldo means that he has now won an award which Messi hasn’t won. Specifically, the Juventus attacker trails against Messi by one Ballon d’Or title. Messi had overtaken the former Real Madrid man in the Ballon d’Or race, winning the much-prized accolade, his sixth, last year.

Ronaldo equals Serie A goalscoring record

Ronaldo’s brace against Parma meant another record for him. The 35-year-old Portuguese international has now become only the fourth footballer in Serie A to have netted at least 33 goals in a calendar year. He equalled the record set by former Juventus forward Omar Sivori’s goal tally dating back to 1961 when he scored 36 Serie A goals in a calendar year.
