From the looks of things, Ronaldo, Messi and Ribery will be fighting for the biggest individual prize in the football world, Messi has won it 4 times back to back and this year he is up there again but I can see Bayern Munich and French international Frank Ribery winning the award this time around as he has been inspirational throughout 2012-13 and current season with Bayern Munich.

Update – Cristiano Ronaldo put together some of the best performances in last couple of months and it has kind of changed the scenario for the FIFA World Play of the year award, before the start of the season Ribery was favourite to land the big prize but now It will be Ronaldo who finaly gets his hand on the biggest individual prize for the 2nd time in his career.

Ronaldo single handedly guided Portugal to World Cup 2014 and that will have a major impact on voting and decision plus that “Commandar” row where Sepp Blatter and Ronaldo were invloved will also have its say. so basicaly its between Ronaldo and Ribery.
