Ronaldo wins another Golden Shoe - level 3

Cristiano Ronaldo has won the European Golden Shoe award for the fourth time. The Real Madrid striker is the first player to bag four Golden Shoes, but the competitive sportsman says it’s not enough.

"I am not satisfied. I always want more. I know I am the only one who has four boots, but I want more. I want a fifth one and sixth one, if possible. Obviously, that means winning things collectively with the team, trophies, but for me Real Madrid is the greatest club in the world and it must win titles every year. This year will obviously be no different."

The award recognises Cristiano as the top scorer in Europe's domestic leagues. He scored 48 goals in 35 appearances for Real last season, edging out Barcelona's Lionel Messi who netted 43 goals in 38 outings.

The sports star picked up the trophy along with his son Cristiano Junior at a ceremony in Madrid.

Ronaldo became Real Madrid's top scorer in history in September, surpassing Raul Gonzalez with 324 goals.

Difficult words: striker (a football player who scores goals), bag (to manage to get something), competitive (hard-working), domestic (happening inside a country; not international), net (to score), surpass (to better than something or someone else).
