Ballon D'Or list of candidates includes CR7, Messi, Neymar & Mbappé

October 9, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
France Football announced the 30-man shortlist with a number of tweets, which included last year's finalists but had some appalling omissions.

World-wide known magazine France Football has revealed the 30-man shortlist aiming to win this year's Ballon D'Or. With Cristiano Ronaldo starting the race as the favorite, names such as Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann shine in a list that had some interesting outcasts.

Names such as Paul Pogba, Alexis Sánchez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to name a few, were forgotten by the French magazine's experts. Liverpool's Sadio Mane, N'Golo Kanté and even Dries Mertens made the cut.

Real Madrid is the team with the most players nominated for the coveted award. Luka Modric, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Isco, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo were all included in the 30-man shortlist. Meanwhile, Barcelona's fans will be rooting for Luis Suárez and Lionel Messi, the only Blaugrana players included.

Here's the series of tweets used by France Football to reveal the nominees.
