Real Madrid dominate FIFPro award nominations
Published in Ahram Online on 20 - 09 - 2017

Real Madrid is the best represented club with a record 13 names on the international players' association FIFPro's shortlist of 55 contenders for its World XI Player Awards.
The Spanish giants, who won both the La Liga and Champions League titles last season, also held the previous club record of having 12 players on the list in both 2014 and 2015.
Nine Spaniards have made the shortlist, making Spain the most well-represented country, with France and Brazil close behind on seven nominations each.
England, who dominated the inaugural shortlist back in 2005 with 10 nominations, have just one representative this year in Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, who has made the list for the first time.
Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon are also included, making them the only two players to make every shortlist since the first World XI in 2005.
About 25,000 professional footballers took part in the poll, which this year covers performances by players from August to June, aligned with the majority of club competitions. Previous editions covered player performances in a calendar year.
