FIFA Ballon d'Or 2015 Shortlist
Who will win the FIFA Best Men's Player Award?

In an event held in London, FIFA announced the shortlist for all the categories of awards that will be presented on 23rd October in the Gala, which will again be held in London, but this time at the Palladium.

From the shortlist for the Puskas Award to that for the Manager of the Year were announced, but none raised as many eyebrows as the inclusion of Neymar in the final 3 for The Best Men's Player Award.

The Brazilian had a decent season, individually, contributing with 20 goals and 27 assists in 45 appearances, however, it didn't match up to the standards of the performances of some of the players, who were ignored, including Robert Lewandowski, Luka Modric, Marcelo.

Twitter, as you would expect, didn't hold back and ranted following the Brazilian's inclusion - who recently completed a world record €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona, in the quest to establish himself as the best player in the world - he seems to be on the right path.

Here are the best tweets:

What can Barcelona fans say in defence?

True that!


The inevitable...

He does have a point...

None of them did...
