A list of the contenders for the FIFA Ballon d'Or has reportedly been leaked and features some outrageous names, as well as four Africans.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim they have received an exclusive list of 59 pre-selected candidates for this year's Ballon d'Or.
The list, with outrageous names such as Arsenal's second-choice goalkeeper David Ospina and even one English League One player, was apparently sent to members of FIFA's Football Committee and leaked to the Spanish publication.
