Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Cesc, Piqué, Puyol, Villa, Alves, Abidal and Alexis Sánchez have all been nominated within the Top 50 candidates for the Ballon d'Or 2011.

The list also includes 5 Real Madrid players (Casillas, Xabi Alonso, Cristiano, Özil, Khedira)and David Silva, Schweinsteiger, Lahm, Gómez, Thomas Müller, Ribery, Klose, Sneijder, Van Persie, Robben y Van der Vaart, Samuel Eto'o, Kun Agüero, Luis Suárez, Diego Forlán, Chicharito Hernández, Wayne Rooney, Neymar and Antonio di Natale.

The list will be narrowed down to 23 on the 1st of November, the 3 finalist will be announced on 5th December and we will know who the winner is on 5th January 2012.

- Everyone expects Messi to win it for obvious reasons but I would like to point out the fact that 1 out of every 5 football superstars in the world play for FC Barcelona. This can only be understood as a result of many years of well-planned development and the triumph of Barça's attacking football, copied and envied around the world.

PROUD TO BE BLAUGRANA, PROUD OF LA MASIA!!!!!
