Barcelona ace Lionel Messi⭐ failed to make it into the final 3-man shortlist😱 for UEFA's Best Player in Europe award🏆 as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann made the cut👏. In fact, Messi was placed 5th after teammate Luis Suarez pipped him to the 4th spot👀. Noticeably, all 5⃣ players ply their trade in the La Liga with no EPL representative in the top-10😏.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who led Real Madrid to their 11th Champions League triumph✌ and then won the Euro with Portugal🎉 is the red-hot favourite to win the honour. The award, which Messi won last year, is voted for by journalists✍from UEFA's member nations. The winner will be announced📢 on August 25, the day of the draw for the Champions League group stage. Gianluigi Buffon, Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer and Pepe complete the top-10👍.
