The nominees for the 2017 Ballon d’Or have been announced.

Senegalese striker Sadio Mane, who plays for Liverpool FC, and Borrusia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are the only Africans in the running.

The usual suspects, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi were included on the shortlist.

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

Atlético Madrid duo Antonio Griezmann and Jan Oblak were also included as well as Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante are the two Chelsea players nominated for the award.

The Ballon d’Or is now judged by a panel of journalists after FIFA and France Football ended their partnership in 2015.
