C. Ronaldo Misses Out On Ballon D’or Shortlist For The First Time In 20 Years

Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence from the nominations for the 2023 Ballon d’Or marks the end of an era in which he had been consistently recognized as one of the top footballers in the world. This is the first time in 20 years that Ronaldo has missed out on a nomination for the prestigious award.

His underwhelming 2023-24 season, controversial move to the Saudi Pro League, and Portugal’s disappointing World Cup campaign all contributed to his absence from the Ballon d’Or nominations. Despite his incredible career achievements, which include winning five Ballons d’Or, Ronaldo did not make the cut this time.

Ronaldo has often been in direct competition with Lionel Messi for the Ballon d’Or, and while he recently downplayed their rivalry, this snub must surely sting. However, he will have the opportunity to focus on his international duties with Portugal as they prepare for Euro 2024 qualifiers.

It remains to be seen whether this marks a turning point in Ronaldo’s illustrious career, but his impact on the footballing world will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come.
