Lionel Messi, Neymar and World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe are among the final players named on the 30-man Ballon d'Or shortlist.

But the Atletico Madrid man is clearly hoping that he or his countrymen get recognised later in the year, adding, "I think the Ballon d'Or has more prestige, a richer history".
The Tottenham striker captained England to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years in Russian Federation this summer.
Sure Pogba wasn't actually picked for his form for Manchester United but for his part in France winning the World Cup but you can still imagine his appearance on the 30 man list would have sent Souness into a rage.
Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, two key members of the France national team that sailed to their second-ever World Cup trophy are also likely to finish with high tallies, as are Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne, members of Belgium's star-studded side that came third at Russian Federation 2018.

Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker who burst onto the global scene with his performances as France won the World Cup, is the favourite.
