Ballon d'Or 2018: Aguero, Bale & Alisson among first five nominees for award





The Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid stars join Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani as being the first players nominated


Defender Fabio Cannavaro was victorious in 2006, while Ronaldinho, Andriy Shevchenko and Pavel Nedved were successful in 2005, 2004 and 2003 respectively.



The last English winner was Michael Owen in 2001, but Ronaldo and Messi have established a stunning stranglehold, winning five each.

Only Michel Platini, Johann Cruyff and Marco van Basten have won three of the awards, while Germany duo Franz Beckenbauer and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Brazil's Ronaldo, Spain's Alfredo Di Stefano and England's Kevin Keegan have won two apiece.

It remains to be seen, however, if Ronaldo or Messi will be successful again this year, after Luka Modric won the FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year award.

Take a look at the first batch of nominees

Edinson Cavani | PSG

Karim Benzema | Real Madrid

Alisson Becker | Liverpool

Gareth Bale | Real Madrid
