There are already the Ballon d'Or trophies for 2008 and 2013 among the more than 160 prizes in the museum overlooking the port of Funchal, Ronaldo's hometown.

The 29-year-old Real Madrid superstar is hot favourite to secure a third at a FIFA ceremony in Zurich.

"If he does not win, there is no justice in football," said Nuno Viveiros, a 32-year-old cousin of the footballer who cheerfully guides visitors around the museum.

Ronaldo's brother Hugo Aveiro runs the museum and his adoring mother Dolores Aveiro is never far away.
