Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will go head-to-head once again for the title of world’s best footballer after being short-listed along with Neymar yesterday for the 2015 FIFA Ballon d’Or.
According to BBC Sports, it is the fifth consecutive year that Real Madrid’s Ronaldo and Barcelona’s Messi have been on the three-man shortlist. But for Neymar, it is the first time he has made the final three.
The three contenders were chosen from a 23-man list that also included Wales and Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale.
