@Pirates_999 u spot on ma man,bt u'll see they'll give it to Ronaldo or Messi as usually. Nowadays to win ballon d'or u must score many goals than others. If u are a midfielder,deffender or goalkeeper jst forget about the award. Did u see Mbape's goal yesterday? Did u see the player who assisted that goal? Guess what,the player who's get the praise for that goal is Mbappe instead of that player who produced the magic to create that goal.

@langutanithom do you think, wish or know for sure that all those players were born in Africa? Good for you some things are free and I can tell you for free that only Umtiti was born in Africa, Cameroon to be exact and left for France when he was only 2 years old

Its was between him and the unsung hero Ngolo Kante, always putting in a shift but never the one to take the credit or limelight

Who won the World cup final between Rats and Dunusa fans since Chiefs was busy with plastic cup. Big teams like Rats and Dunusa were playing world cup.
