FIFA Ballon d'Or: A Complete Guide to Who Voted for Who

So Lionel Messi became the first footballer in history to win four Ballon D’Ors with over 41 percent of the vote.

For the fourth consecutive year a select group of journalists and the captains and coaches of all the FIFA national teams voted the Argentine the best footballer in the world.

The final vote count ranked Cristiano Ronaldo 2nd (24 percent) and Andrés Iniesta 3rd (11 percent).

If you wonder who Messi, Ronaldo, Iker Casillas, Joe Hart or Samuel Eto’o voted for, you’re in the right place. Here is a complete guide with the detailed votes of over 50 top players.

Before you start, a quick reminder of the rules: players and coaches were asked to name their top three players in the world from a shortlist selected by FIFA and France Football.

The first player receives five points, the second three and the third one.

The only restriction is that players are not allowed to vote for themselves.

If there any captains or coaches whose vote you want to know about and are missing in the slideshow, leave a request in the comment section and I'll be happy to put them up.

If you want to find out how a third of international captains left out Cristiano Ronaldo, how close di Matteo was to making the podium and other interesting stats check out my article here:
