Cristiano Ronaldo once again beat out Lionel Messi to win the Oscars of the Football World. France Football announced the top spot before finishing their count down. Could be something to do with their magazine cover featuring CR7 leaking ahead of the announcement?!
The top 10 players were:
1⃣st CRISTIANO RONALDO (Real Madrid/Portugal)
6⃣th GARETH BALE (Real Madrid/Wales)
7⃣th RIYAD MAHREZ (Leicester City/Algeria) - also named BBC African Footballer of the Year today👏
