The list of 30 nominated playerss for the Ballon d’Or, the most coveted trophy in world football, is officially out. The Ballon d’Or ceremony will be held on October 17, 2022 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

Among the list we find four French players: Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe, Mike Maignan and Christopher Nkunku. Some favorites are obviously present such as Mohamed Salah, Robert Lewandowski or Cristiano Ronaldo, present for his 18th nomination.

A few surprises should be noted, such as the presence of the French Christopher Nkunku, the Colombian Luis Diaz or the Ivorian Sébastien Haller, all of whom have had very good seasons in their club. On the other hand, the absence of Lionel Messi, of Neymar Jr or even Paul Pogba are big surprises for this 2022 edition.
