Ronaldo’s Speech:

“Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. It’s incredible. I want to thank my teammates of Real Madrid and the coach. Thanks for everthing you have done for me. I must thank my family and my whole staff for everything they have given me. 2016 was the best year of my career. I had a lot of doubts, but at the end of it the trophies speak for themselves. They show I’ve lived up to the expectations and I achieved the best I could. This achievement is incredible. I will never forget this year. I’m really happy.”


Best Fifa Women’s Player

The Best Fifa Women’s Player is…. Carli Lloyd.



Mohd Faiz bin Subri wins the PUSKÁS AWARD for the best goal of 2016. He plays for Malaysia Super League club Penang FA and the goal he scored was a 40-yard free-kick that had plenty of “swazz” on it. Well deserved.


Claudio Ranieri wins FIFA Coach of the Year.

Ranieri’s Speech:

“What a fantastic evening for not only to be here with a lot of legends but to win as well. I’m crazy now! Very crazy. Thank you so much. I want to thank my wife, my agent and of course my players. Without them it’s difficult for the manger to win something. Also, the fans. What happened last season in England was amazing, something strange. The god of football said Leicester must win! Dani Alves said he could still do more at his age – my age is 65! I start now to make a manager.”



Silvia Neid, who led Germany to their first gold medal in women’s football at the Rio Olympics.



Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund fans win the FIFA Fan Award for their act of solidarity when signing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to remember those that lost their life in the Hillsborough disaster.
