Best XI Players Forgotten In The 2021 Ballon D'OR Nominations

French football released a list of 30 players who were nominated for the 2021 Ballon D'OR award. However, there are those players who performed well during the year either at club level or in their various countries but were not nominated for Ballon d'Or.

Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez kept 15 clean sheets for Aston Villa in the English Premier League and 4 clean sheets for Argentina in Copa America but he was not norminated for the award. He also made an impact in Argentina winning the Copa America.

English Premier League defenders like Luke Shaw of Manchester United and Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea have been outstanding throughout the year which deserves an award.

Marco Verratti and Federico Chiesa contributed in Italy winning the Euro 2020 but they did not appear in the list of players norminated for the Ballon D'OR. Do you think that these players deserved a normination for the 2021 Ballon d'Or.
