Harry Kane on Ballon d’Or list

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has joined Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar on the 30-man Ballon d’Or 2017 shortlist.


Kane is one of seven Premier League players nominated, with Liverpool duo Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane also up for France Football’s prestigious award.

Chelsea pair N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne also make the list.

Gareth Bale, who finished sixth in last year’s rankings, did not make the list.

The Ballon d’Or, which was aligned with FIFA from 2010 to 2015, has been won by either Ronaldo or Messi for the past nine years.

Ronaldo picked up his fourth Ballon d’Or last year to move one behind Messi, and the Portugal and Real Madrid forward is odds-on favourite to make it five this time around.
