Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for and captains both Saudi Professional League club Al Nassr and the Portugal national team. He was born on February 5, 1985, in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal.
Ronaldo’s father, José Dinis Aveiro, was the equipment manager for the local club Andorinha. Ronaldo began playing soccer at a young age and by the time he was 10 years old, he had already joined the youth team of Andorinha.
Ronaldo has won numerous awards throughout his career including five Ballon d’Or awards. He has also been named FIFA World Player of the Year three times.
Ronaldo’s playing style is that of a forward with a free-reined attacking style. He is known for his sleight of foot, intelligent movement, excellent positional sense, link-up play, clinical finishing, and opportunism. He has adapted his style of play over the years to become more of a free-roaming centre forward, where he can find space in the box and score from few opportunities.
