Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on FIFA Ballon D’Or List



Cristiano Ronaldo and four-time winner Lionel Messi are among the 23 players that made FIFA’s list of contenders for the Ballon D’Or. FIFA Football Committee and a French magazine, France Football, compiled the list of contenders. Messi has won the award four straight years from 2009-2012, while Ronaldo won it in 2008 and 2013. The list includes 17 players from Europe, 5 from South America and one from Africa. Ironically Barcelona’s striker, Luis Suarez, who was named the Premier League’s Player of the Year last season did not make the list. Looks like his biting incidents has kept him from any awards this year.
