58

With France Football having taken a coronavirus-enforced break in 2020, anticipation is building ahead of the next awarding of a Ballon d’Or.


Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski are among the nominees on the 30-man 2021 Ballon d’Or longlist to have been released by France Football.

Other superstar performers to get the nod include Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Romelu Lukaku.

A Ballon d’Or heading in the direction of any of those mentioned above would come as no surprise, but the likes of Euro 2020 and Champions League winner Jorginho and his Chelsea team-mate N’Golo Kante also have their sights set on a shock win.
