Players nominated for Ballon d’Or, other awards


Before getting to the news, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates the past few days. We have been very busy doing some behind the scenes work on some new things at Mundo.

With that said, four Argentine’s have been nominated for the Ballon d’Or France Football award.

Lionel MESSI, Paulo DYBALA, Sergio AGÜERO and Gonzalo HIGUAIN.

Lionel MESSI, Paulo DYBALA, Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Sergio AGÜERO have all been nominated for the award. Though MESSI is the only one of the four with a real chance of winning it, the likely winner this year remains Cristiano RONALDO.

In other award news, the La Liga awards came out and there are a few other winners as well. Lionel MESSI won the award for the league’s best striker (best player award went to Luis SUAREZ)), Diego SIMEONE won the best coach and Alex SZYMANOWSKI won the player of the year for his performances last season in the second division.

      • Apart from that, he scored total of 16 goals in last champions league games against, Malmo,Shakhtar,Roma,and Wolfsburg. None of them qualified this time.It shows how poor those team were. He could not a score single goal in 5 matches he played against PSG, Mancity,and Atletico madrid.

  1. Cant say C.Ronaldo will win this time. At this current form Messi will make strong competition for Ronaldo especially as it is an award given for the calendar year not for the season. Messi almost back to his best form of 2012.

    Here is the status for the calendar year (Club & Country).

    In 2016,

    Messi: 51 APPS 29 ASSISTS 49 GOALS = 1.53 Goal/Assists per game.
    Ronaldo: 46 APPS 15 ASSISTS 41 GOALS = 1.22 Goal/Assists per game.

    In 2012,

    Messi: 69 APPS 22 ASSISTS 91 GOALS = 1.64 Goal/Assists per game.

    Only in 2012 Messi had more than 100+ (goal+assists). Only Messi has done it. This year probably he can make it second time.

    In 2012 Messi had 12 goals and 1 assist in 9 games for Argentina
    In 2016 Messi have 7 goals and 5 assists in 9 games for Argentina.

  2. This has always been a two horse race for some time..This time it is going to be C.Ronaldo again..there is no surprise..

    I feel for Xavi, Iniesta now etc..they work so hard for nothing..
