Ronaldo continues to assert dominance over La Liga after scoring the winner against Getafe

"But what he has achieved for Real Madrid is fantastic".

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has refused to pick his starman Cristiano Ronaldo over rival Lionel Messi as his preferred candidate for the 2017 Ballon d'or.

It's always been known Ronaldo was unhappy with the decision to let Morata go, and thinks the club should have spent more in the summer as well - to strengthen their side and retain their trophies.

"There are 30 nominees, some very good players, and if I was in there [top three] that would be great, but I don't think about that", he said. I have a continuity I didn't have before, so you get this trust which is important for a football player. In a 2-1 win over Getafe, he grabbed his first goal of the season in the league, which will come as a huge relief for the current world player of the year. "It is true that in LaLiga he's not been amongst the goals but in the Champions League he's been on fire".

Four-nation talks on peace and stability in Afghanistan started on October 16 in Muscat, Oman. Pakistan, however, has been accused of failing to fulfill its promises.

"We know that if you have a good game you are God and if you misplace five passes in a row, they want to kick you out of Madrid".

The four-time Ballon d'Or victor has been more prolific in the Champions League so far, though, scoring four goals in two games, and Isco is confident the Portugal worldwide will be at his best for the visit of Spurs.

The forward is one of the clear favourites to win the trophy after inspiring his side to a Liga and Champions League double last term, despite his struggle for form this season, in which he has scored only one league goal.

"It was a matter of time; Cristiano is a lethal finisher", he said. "Seven titles means a lot - and the way he has managed so numerous best players".
