Cristiano Ronaldo backed up his silverware-laden 2016 by defending his Champions League, Club World Cup and Ballon d’Or titles in 2017, and added a La Liga crown to the mix as well. He also equalled Lionel Messi’s record five Ballon D’or awards. Probably the best season of his life.

2. Real “unstoppable” Madrid

Real Madrid became the first club in Champions League history to win back-to-back titles in 2017, and they added La Liga, the UEFA Super Cup, thr Spanish Super Cup and the Club World Cup for good measure.

3. Big guns missing the tickets to Russia 2018

4. Neymar breaking Transfer records

Neymar, meanwhile, became the most expensive footballer of all time after joining Paris Saint-Germain in a €222 million deal, and has promptly set fire to Ligue 1.
