Nominees for the 2021 Ballon dOr award

The Ballon d’Or ceremony did not take place last year because of the pandemic. There is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski would have won last year, but this year there are more footballers who had an amazing year.

Here’s a list of the nominated candidates that could win:

Cesar Azpilicueta

Nicolo Barella

Karim Benzema

Leonardo Bonucci

Giorgio Chiellini

Kevin De Bruyne

Ruben Dias 

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Bruno Fernandes

Phil Foden

Erling Haaland

Jorginho

Harry Kane

N’Golo Kante

Simon Kjaer

Robert Lewandowski

Lautaro Martinez

Kylian Mbappe

Lionel Messi

Luka Modric

Gerard Moreno

Mason Mount

Neymar

Pedri

Cristiano Ronaldo

Mohamed Salah

Raheem Sterling 

Luis Suarez

Now that a 30-man list of top performers from the last 12 months has been compiled, the voting process will begin.

A selection of international journalists, national team coaches and captains will be polled to determine the winner, with each voter being asked to pick out their top five.

Once that process has been completed, the prestigious prize will be handed out at a glitzy ceremony in Paris on November 29.
