The third batch of names features Harry Kane as the first and likely only Englishman on the list; he is joined by Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

Following an adjustment to the rules previous year, France Football, owners of the Ballon d'Or, will drop the full 30-man list in batches of five across the day.

The Argentine has won the award four times (2010, 2011, 2012, 2015) while the Portuguese has won the award twice (2013 and 2014).
