Ronaldo will shine yet again. Haters shall hate. The question on the defender of the year is whether they'll punish Ramos for what happened between him & Mo Salah or not because besides that, he deserves the accolade.

Messi nominated? There's totally nothing he did I'm sho himself he was shocked that his nominated. Notice for the fact that his the only Barcelona player nominated, him n his teammates were useless. Those who were nominating were just scared not to nominate him cowards.

We're waiting for the Puskas where it will include Kekane's goal against the builders Sandilands. Every year this team is sending a candidate to Puskas Awards
