Sport publish a Ballon d’Or XI of the players who didn’t make the shortlist (Ft. Aguero, Vidal & More)

Earlier this week the 23 players shortlisted for this year’s Ballon d’Or were announced.

Some eyebrows were raised when certain names missed out on the shortlist and Spanish newspaper Sport have published an XI of players who missed out.

The Sport XI has actually raised some eyebrows at 101GG HQ with the likes of Juan Mata and Marco Reus not in their XI.

However, they have managed to get some top players in their side with Arturo Vidal, Sergio Busquets and Ilkay Gundogan bossing the midfield.

Wayne Rooney’s inclusion is a little strange after his poor season of 12/13.
