Football Star Cristiano Ronaldo at 33

Zidane then replaced Ronaldo and paid for that as Levante snatched a late equalizer from recent signing Giampaulo Pazzini after some poor defending from Madrid. "He could still win the next Ballon d'Or", Silva said in a statement.

"That Madrid is going through a low in the league at the moment is, in my opinion, quite normal, especially if you have won the Champions League twice and been Spanish champions too", he told Goal.

They will have to make do without Neymar, who has been left at home to rest ahead of the first leg against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu next week and after his lavish 26th birthday celebrations last weekend. Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the Ballon d'Or race over a decade as they are the only two players to win in the coveted title five times.

PadMan Challenge accepted by many celebrity
The celebrity who accepts the challenge has to post a picture and then again challenge someone. Aamir Khan had starred with Twinkle Khanna in Dharmesh Darshan's dud Mela (2000).

He also helped Portugal qualify for the World Cup finals via the play-offs against Switzerland.

The Portuguese legend has broken record after record in a career that has seen him amass countless trophies in England and Spain, as well as winning the Champions League four times and leading his national side to victory in the European Championships in 2016.

But perhaps the most surprising appearance - and one that appears to have gone under the radar - is Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo's cameo in a Super Bowl themed advert.

That hard work starts now and the Champions League showdown between Neymar and Ronaldo in Madrid next week is the ideal chance for the Brazilian to land an early blow as he bids to make his 26th year his most memorable to date.
