The prestigious Ballon d’Or Ceremony was held on Monday night in Paris seeing Croatian star Luka Modric overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to win this year’s award. However one big question was asked amongst the footballing world, “Where was Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr.?”

Neymar ended up placing 12th. Take a look at Neymar gaming below and the top ten Ballon d’Or winners here.
