Ballon d'Or: How the world's top footballers voted in their ballots

A revealing look at who voted for whom in this year's FIFA Ballon d'Or, which was won by Lionel Messi.

Who did the world's top footballers vote to win the Ballon d'Or? FIFA has revealed the answers.

The captains of FIFA's national teams, their managers and a media member from each country all had a vote.

While many chose eventual winner Lionel Messi, there were some curious choices.

Notable notes on the votes:

- Germany's Bastian Schweinsteiger, Austria's Christian Fuchs and Poland's Robert Lewandowski all voted Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer first.

- Luis Suarez, notably left off...

Belgium (SPI odds to win group: 50.8 percent)

Long has it been prophesied that Belgium would rule the world of football. Now, according to FIFA's rankings, they really do. But if this golden generation is to do more than just offer promise and potential, they need to step up and win a...

Belgium a good bet for Euro 2016 as Hazard and co. top FIFA rankings

Belgium have replaced Argentina as the No.1 ranked side in the world.

Brussels' King Badouin Stadium felt like the spot for a royal party Tuesday. Belgium were celebrating on a number of fronts -- having already clinched qualification for Euro 2016, they sealed top spot in Group B with a 3-1 win over Israel.

It was a victory that also meant they would become only the eighth nation to occupy the No.1 spot in the FIFA world rankings since they began in December 1992. The latest table is produced next month.

Little wonder that Barcelona's Thomas Vermaelen spoke...

Marouane Fellaini congratulated by Man United for being an unused sub

Marouane Fellaini's best bench-warming efforts for Belgium on Saturday night did not go unnoticed.

Fellaini played no part for his country as they secured Euro 2016 qualification with a 4-1 victory over Andorra, with the 27-year-old an unused substitute for Marc Wilmots' side.

Manchester United, however, must have seen something the rest of us did not, as they congratulated their player on "helping" Belgium book their ticket to France.

Bosnia-Herzegovina unable to cope with Belgium's individual quality

Kevin De Bryune, Marouane Fellaini and Eden Hazard all scored as the Belgium stars showed up against a feisty Bosnian side.

Mehmed Bazdarevic, the 54-year old manager of Bosnia-Herzegovina, could have not been more honest and direct to a small pack of journalists at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Thursday night. His Bosnia-Herzegovina team had just lost to Belgium 3-1, despite looking in control after Edin Dzeko had opened the scoring in the 15th minute.

"I believe that we did our best," he said. "But, at this point, Belgium is a side with much better individuals than we have and this result is realistic."

Bale making Wales believe after win over Belgium

Three observations from Wales' 1-0 triumph over Belgium in Euro 2016 qualifying.

1. This feels like Wales' time

The roar that erupted inside Cardiff City Stadium at full-time, after Wales had defended a late flurry of Belgian corners that included a futile sortie upfield from Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, took the breath away. This will go down as a famous night in the country's football history if -- as seems likely now -- Chris Coleman's team sees out its final four Euro 2016 qualifiers...
