No Ronaldo, lots of youngsters and a super league star

Fifa publishes “The Best” shortlists

Cristiano Ronaldo is missing a big name on Fifa’s world footballer shortlist, but there are many youngsters. Sion star Mario Balotelli has also been nominated in another category.


Fifa presents the nominees for the “The Best” awards.

Next low blow for Cristiano Ronaldo (37): There is no trace of the Portuguese on the shortlist for the footballer of the year published by Fifa. But the list makes it clear how the aspiring new generation is conquering world football. Six of the 14 nominees are under 25 years old.

The nomination of Argentinian Julian Alvarez should cause a surprise when looking at the list. The 22-year-old was world champion with Argentina in Qatar and played a significant part in that with four goals. However, the striker at his club Manchester City is usually only the second choice behind his team-mate Erling Haaland (22), who is also nominated, and has scored only three goals in 13 Premier League games.
