As Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his 33rd birthday, we look at the seven most iconic moments of his magnanimous career.

They will both be remembered as two of the greatest - if not *the* two greatest - players of all time. In fact, he's only lagging behind Messi's total of club goals, having scored 268 to Messi's 313.

FC Bayern München manager Jupp Heynckes has backed Real Madrid to get past Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, despite the Spanish side's poor form.

Statistically speaking, Les Parisiens' No. 10 is shaping up nicely. Much more! I believe they will win the tie. "He could still win the next Ballon d'Or", Silva said in a statement.

Real take on PSG at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium for the first-leg fixture on the 14th of February.

"It is very hard to choose as I like both clubs and they have a lot of passion", the Englishman added.

The stats back that up too, with Neymar averaging 102 touches of the ball per game with PSG, 4.3 shots and 3.6 chances created, compared with 73.4, 3.2 and 2.3 with Barcelona.

And it's not his first foray into the National Football League; before the 2014 World Cup, Ronaldo and his Portugal team-mates trained at the New York Jets' practice facility where then-wide receiver David Nelson taught the former Man United man how to throw.

Neymar is unlikely to shoot to the top of that list by the end of 2018 but that is not the main aim - winning a sixth World Cup for the Selecao is the objective and in doing that, he may well be able to overtake Romario and Ronaldo. His trophy memorabilia includes championship titles around the world.

But the Special One is more interested in a potential transfer for Kovacic.

The Brazil worldwide has admitted that he is happy to be facing Ronaldo and not Barcelona's Lionel Messi in the Champions League round of 16 first leg next week.
