Rooney Nominated for Ballon d'Or

Rooney Nominated for Ballon d'Or

We may not have even made it out of the group stages of the Champions League last season.

We may even have crashed out of the Europa League at the first attempt, but somebody likes our Wayne as Mr Rooney is the only Englishman to be nominated in a class of 23 for the prestigious Ballon d`Or, the list being:

Sergio Agüero,
Xabi Alonso,
Mario Balotelli,
Karim Benzema,
Gianluigi Buffon,
Sergio Busquets,
Iker Casillas,
Cristiano Ronaldo,
Didier Drogba,
Radamel Falcao,
Zlatan Ibrahimović,
Andrés Iniesta,
Lionel Messi,
Manuel Neuer,
Neymar,
Mesut Özil,
Gerard Piqué,
Andrea Pirlo,
Sergio Ramos,
Wayne Rooney,
Yaya Touré,
Robin van Persie,
Xavi.

Who do you reckon will win then?

What is even the point of announcing the short list? The award always goes to one of Barca or Madrids players. In my opinion RVP and Falcao were more influential in their teams that are far weaker in strength than Ronaldo or Messi at Madrid or Barca.
