They may be well into the autumn of their careers but Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have both enjoyed another stellar calendar year in 2021.
Both players won silverware in the first half of the year – Messi lifted the Copa del Rey with Barcelona and the Copa America with Argentina, while Ronaldo was victorious in last season’s Coppa Italia before winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2020.
