It’s unclear if the Nashville audience is referring to “Alien” Ronaldo Nazario or superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. But most likely what they mean is the Portuguese captain – the player playing for Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia.

Messi holds the record of winning eight Golden Balls, while Ronaldo is behind with five awards. The chance for the Al Nassr captain to equal Messi’s achievements is almost gone, when he is 39 years old.
