Best of CR7 2007/08

Sunday, June 1, 2008

2007/08 season is the season for Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, or well known as Cristiano Ronaldo. Perhaps he will never forget about this astonishing season as well.

He won all major titles this season including Premier League and Champions League titles and made himself as Top Scorer in both competition.

He also won the 2008 English PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year, which is a back to back victories for him on both awards.

With all of those achievements, there is no doubt for me that he will win the FIFA World Player of the Year award.

Although he managed to finish 2007/08 season with style, he didn't start the season with good action - he was sent off at Portsmouth.

However, in his first match following the ban Ronaldo scored the only goal in the Champions League away match against his former club Sporting Lisbon.

After this match, the goalscoring continued for Ronaldo in the next Premier League and Champions League fixtures.

On December 2007, Ronaldo was officially announced as the runner up for European Footballer of the Year award, behind the winner, Kaká.

In this month, he was also announced as third place for the FIFA World Player of the Year award, finishing behind Kaká and Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo, nicknamed CR7, scored his first hat-trick for Manchester United in the 6-0 victory against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

On March 19, 2008, Ronaldo surpassed 40-year-old United record for the most goals scored by a midfielder in one season with George Best hold the late record 32 goals in the 1967/68 season.

For the first time in his career in United, Ronaldo was captain for the Red Devils on a Premier League match against Bolton at Old Trafford, which he scored both goals in a 2-0 win for United.

In the last Premier League fixture, Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot against Wigan Athletic and made him tied with Alan Shearer with 31 goals for the Premier League record for most goals scored in a 38-game season.

His goal also secured the 10th Premier Leaguetitle for United.

Ronaldo then scored the only United's goal in the Champions League Final, and brought him at the second place for most goals scored in one United season with 42 goals, behind Ruud Van Nistelrooy's record 44 goals in 2002/2003 season.

He failed to score in the penalty shoot-out, but in the end United managed to beat Chelsea and avoid Ronaldo to become the villain.
