Messi, Ronaldo on World XI shortlist

On the same day as being named on FIFA’s three-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have also been named on a 15-man shortlist of forwards as part of the process to decide the 2013 FIFA FIFPro World XI.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter prefers Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo.
