Well we have gone through the FIFA World Cup during summer and we have seen some great display from the Germans. Cristiano Ronaldo, a clear favourite for the Ballon d’Or didn’t put up a great performance, while Messi was on and off with his performance. The Spaniards had a horrendous performance and it’s a shame that previous candidates to the Ballon d’Or like Iker Casillas and Xavi are now going down fast in terms of their peak performance.
Neymar was too focused on his hairstyles and haircuts as he dyed his hair blonde for every match and had a new haircut for every match. His display of creative Brazilian football was non-existent and I simply cannot see any Brazilian in the top 3 for the Ballon d’Or trophy.
The French as well as the English didn’t put up a good show and I don’t think any of their players deserves to be in the top 3 of the Ballon d’Or based on their World Cup performances.
Considering their performances at club level together with their FIFA World Cup. This is my top 3:
What is your top 3?
