'CR7's' goalscoring exploits will likely be why he was named 'Player of the Century' at Dubai's Globe Soccer Awards last month.

After receiving the award he said: "For 20 consecutive years I have played and scored as a professional, I didn't know there was another record to beat.

"It's a pleasure to hear about the records, I have achieved all this but without my team-mates, without a great team, I would not have achieved these records."

"The one with Cristiano Ronaldo was and is a special duel, which will remain forever," he said. "It lasted many years and it is not easy to maintain certain levels for a long time.

"Our teams were also very demanding: Real Madrid and Barcelona, the two strongest clubs in the world. Competing as equals for so many years is something that will remain forever.

The duel between me and Cristiano Ronaldo was very good on a personal level and I think people enjoyed it."
