The young Belgian flyer is one of 23 shortlisted for the World Player of the Year award!
Chelsea have congratulated their 22-year-old Belgian winger Eden Hazard for his nomination for this year’s Ballon D’or, that goes to the best footballer on the planet every year.
Lionel Messi has won it remarkably for four consecutive seasons, but this year will face strong competition from Franck Ribery and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hazard is not regarded as having much of a chance of winning it, but as one of the youngest players nominated, he might just pick the award up in the future.
Congratulations to Eden Hazard for being nominated for this year’s FIFA Ballon d’Or award ! #CFC
