Lionel Messi outshone his Ballon d'Or rival Cristiano Ronaldo but the latter's team took the spoils
Portugal live updates
Many happy returns to Portugal's suavest football export Luis Figo, who turns 40 today. The former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter winger has achieved so much in the last 20 years, not least a huge improvement in his hair style.
Also celebrating today is Dutchman Mario Melchiot (35).
Looking ream, Ron.
Cristiano Ronaldo will link up with the Portugal squad as scheduled after Real Madrid confirmed the shoulder injury he suffered in El Clasico on Sunday evening was not serious.
