To all football fans all over the world, Feb 05 is a special day. A day that two of the greatest footballer in the world were born. Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar both share the same birth date. The Portuguese International and the Brazilian star has a collection of 51 titles shared among themselves.

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro plays as a forward for Serie A club Juventus and captains the Portugal national team. Often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Ronaldo has won five Ballon d'Or awards.

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born in São Pedro, Funchal, on the Portuguese island of Madeira, and grew up in Santo António, Funchal. He is the fourth and youngest child of Maria Dolores dos Santos Viveiros da Aveiro, a cook, and Late José Dinis Aveiro, a municipal gardener and part-time kit man.

Ronaldo began his senior club career playing for Sporting CP, before signing with Manchester United in 2003, aged 18. Ronaldo was the subject of the then-most expensive association football transfer when signed for Real Madrid in a transfer worth €94 million.

In 2018, the Portuguese International signed for Juventus in a transfer worth an initial €100 million, the highest fee ever paid by an Italian club and the highest ever paid for a player over 30 years old.

Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior known as Neymar, plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team. He is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world.

Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior was born in Mogi das Cruzes, São Paulo, to Neymar Santos Sr. and Nadine da Silva. He inherited his name from his father, who is a former footballer and became his son's advisor as Neymar's talents began to grow. Neymar comments on his father's role: "My father has been by my side since I was little. He takes care of things, my finances and my family."

Neymar came into prominence at Santos, where he made his professional debut aged 17 and was twice named the South American Footballer of the Year, in 2011 and 2012, and soon relocated to Europe to join Barcelona where he won all club competitions title with the team, an attacking trio comprising of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

In 2017, Neymar transferred to Paris Saint-Germain in a move worth €222 million, making him the most expensive player ever.
