The FIFA Ballon D'or Final Three Candidates


Fifa has just announced the Final three candidates for the Ballon D'or and it's obviously no surprise that the final three candidates are Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentine Captain Lionel Messi and German Goal Keeper Manuel Neuer.
Ronaldo had an excellent season with  Real Madrid which saw the team win the Uefa Champions League and Copa Del Rey although he would most likely not want to be judged by his (and Portugal's) World Cup performance.
Lionel Messi came out of injury and had an excellent season although narrowly missed out on winning any major trophies. He had an excellent world cup where he picked up the best player award, he did take Argentina to the World Cup Final where they were beaten by Germany in Extra time through a Götze goal.
Manuel Neuer had a very excellent world cup which saw the country win the world cup and saw him pick the best goal keeper award. Sides from the world Cup, Manuel Neuer was also excellent in domestic competitions where he and Bayern Munich team won both the DFB-Pokal and Bundlesliga. He was also the German Footballer of the year.
What do you think about the final three??
