    Ronaldo, Messi, Mbappé, Modric and so on... This year has been full of emotions for soccer fans. Who will win the most prestigious individual award a football player can receive this year?

    9. Benjamin Pavard (France) /HONORABLE MENTION/ / Via

    Just wanted to thank Benjamin for what he did during the game against Argentina (World cup). If I had to choose I would directly give you the award but things don't go my way.

    Benjamin Pavard, Benjamin Pavard,

    Je crois pas que vous connaissez,

    Il sort de nulle part,

    Une frappe de bâtard,

    On a Benjamin Pavard

    8. N'Golo Kanté (France) / Via

    N'gollo the savior. One of the biggest revelation of this year 2018. Impressive with Chelsea, elected best Premier League player by the Association of Professional Footballers.

    7. Eden Hazard (Belgium) / Via

    Despite his bad faith after the defeat of the national Belgian team against the national French team during the last World Cup (2018), Hazard remains one the best player in the world.

    6. Lionel Messi (Argentina) / Via

    Legends can never last for eternity. After a really good season in Barcelona Messi has been nominated for the 2018's Ballon D'or. After five win, will he be able to keep his number one place alongside Christiano Ronaldo?

    5. Christiano Ronaldo (Portugal) / Via

    As the same level as Lionel Messi, Ronaldo has been designated as a soccer legend. Won 5 times Ballon D'or and scored more than 600 goals during his career.

    4. Antoine Griezmann (France) / Via

    The Athletico Madrid soccer player is one of the favorites of this 2018 Ballon D'or. After the 2018 World cup, he is seen as one of the best French players of the history.

    3. Raphael Varane (France) / Via

    The Real Madrid soccer player is on the podium. After a really good season in his club and a World cup in his prize list, the 25 years old Lillois is seen as a serious competitor in the Ballon D'or race.

    2. Luka Modric (Croatia) / Via

    another Real Madrid soccer player on the podium. The leader of the surprising Croatian national team might become the first Croatian to receive the prestigious prize.

    1. Kylian Mbappé (France) / Via

    It takes time to build a Legend. Not for Kylian Mbappé who is already one of the best players in the world. World cup champion and best young player award, Ligue 1 champion, best young French player, second-most expensive Association Football transferred player (€135 M, from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain in 2018) and so on... Let's see if Donatello will become the youngest soccer player to win Ballon D'or.
