The UEFA Champions League, the UEFA European Championship and the FIFA Club World Cup: 2016 was an outstanding year for Cristiano Ronaldo, culminating with him winning the first-ever edition of The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award. But the great Portugal and Real Madrid goalscorer already has his eyes on a new trophy to add to his already burgeoning collection in 2017.

“It will be the first time Portugal compete for the Confederations Cup trophy. It’s going to be beautiful and will stay on our CV. Obviously, it’s a dream to win, but we know it’s going to be hard as some great teams will be there. But in football everything is possible,” said Ronaldo in an exclusive interview to FIFA.com, available for media to download via the links below.

In November, Portugal were drawn in Group A, together with hosts Russia, and New Zealand and Mexico. In the group stage, the European champions will travel to KazanMoscow and Saint Petersburg.

Showing his eagerness to make the most of the tournament this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo also tried out a couple of Russian phrases. “Privet” (hello), “na zdorovie”(cheers), before finally  saying, in the comfort of his mother tongue, “see you at the Confederations Cup”.
