QUIZ: Ballon d'Or Winners and Runners-Up since 2000

Can you recall every winner and runner-up of the Ballon d'Or award since the year 2000?

Taking place every year since 1956, the Ballon d'Or has been a way of officially announcing the best footballer in the world. It's featured the players who've taken football by storm every season and it's voted for by fellow-professional footballers, so there's never any chance of it being deemed biased or fixed by fans of players who failed to win it.

Although there's been several years where specific players have dominated the Ballon d'Or by sealing successive wins or being able to achieve a runner-up place through their impressive consistency among the best players in the world, there's plenty of players who've featured once. The names mentioned in past years really do prompt a blast from the past for fans of European and international football, so we've made a quiz where you need to identify every winner and runner-up since 2000. You're given five minutes to guess all fifty-four names - which would have been longer if there weren't so many players who featured more than once - so share it with your friends and send in your best attempt to us at @FootyAccums.
