FIFA announced the 23-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or 2015 today and it seems like we will have a final three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Neymar.
We have to agree these are the best 23 players in the world...
FIFA describe the process from here: “The final decisions will be made by the captains and head coaches of the men’s national teams as well as by international media representatives selected by France Football. The winners of all of the awards will be announced at the FIFA Ballon d’Or as part of a televised show at the Zurich Kongresshaus on 11 January 2016.
On 30 November, FIFA and France Football will announce in a web show the names of the three women and three men, as well as the three coaches for women’s football and three coaches for men’s football, who have received the most votes (without announcing the winners). The three nominees for the FIFA Puskás Award (honouring the most beautiful goal of the year) will be also unveiled.”
