    Bastian Schweinsteiger, Germany, Bayern Munich
    Yaya Toure, Ivory Coast, Manchester City

    This was the 23 man shortlist for 2014, I don't think it's inferior to 1998. Suarez also didn't make it for non-footballing reasons despite easily being the third best player in the world during 2013-14 season.

    You mention Bale 1st and then say that you don't think it's inferior to 1998.
    Not to mention the insanity of having Di Maria on the freakin shortlist, and the likes of Yaya, Gotze and Ibra who did nothing this season!

    Alphabetical order Darko
    Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."

    It's 2014 Ballon d'Or list, in alphabetical order. Not 2015.
