  1. Once Messi retires, I don’t see anyone other of our players getting nominated. Off course, we don’t know what we don’t know. Someone can always surprise us. Will be great to have that surprise.

    BTW, super happy to see Lionel Scaloni in the best coaches list!! Way to go!

    • True. Considering European bias and hates towards SA players, i indeed do not see any SA players nominated in future. Even with Messi, if he was not with Barca they probably would have overlooked him. I just looked at FIFA stats, they deliberately omitted Messi’s COPA DEL REY and pichichi win while at Barca. European are tired of seeing best players coming from SA and now they tried to make their own. There was a research that showed Messi was hated by Media more than C. Ronaldo but we wont hear it.
