The most talked about football Awards (arguably) is finally here. The 2013 edition of the 2013 FIFA Ballon d'Or ceremony will be held this evening at Zurich. So, who deserves to be crowned the World Best Footballer among the three nominees vying for it. Will Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) win his 2nd award, Franck Ribery (Bayern) his first or Lionel Messi (Barcelona) his 5th?

LIONEL MESSI

The Argentine topped La Liga's 2012/13 scoring charts with 46 goals and 12 assists in 32 games.

FRANCK RIBERY

The UEFA's Best Player in Europe inspired Bayern to win Bundesliga,

Champions League, DFB-Pokal, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in 2013.

CRISTIANO RONALDO

The Portuguese also recorded 34 goals and 10 assists last season along with 20 and 4 in 17 Liga games this season. His hat-trick against Sweden in November that propelled Portugal into the World Cup-Ronaldo would not be forgotten in such a hurry.
