Ronaldo wins FIFA World Player Award

Our correspondent in Zurich can confirm that Cristiano Ronaldo has been named FIFA World Player of 2008. Leo Messi placed and El Niño Roto finished third. It's Ronaldo's first time winning the award and closes out his individual trophy treble. Ronny also won this year's Ballon d'or (journalists' vote) and FIFPro World Player of the Year (as voted by the players.)

first ever Prem League player to take the award. interesting.

every time a new '08 footballer of year' award article or press release comes out, it's like sitting down for a class of AP/IB/Honors Fucking Obvious.
