Casillas prevented Robben from winning the world cup by making 2 crucial saves in a 1 on 1 (2times) against robben so wat are u saying bruh

I mentioned Fifa ballon D'or cos that was what was obtainable when Robben was in his prime between 2009 - 2016.

I repeat: Robben never made Fifa ballon D'or top 3. In 2013 when he won UCL, it was Ronaldo, Messi and Franck Ribery in that order. In 2014, twas Ronaldo Messi and Manuel Neuer. In 2012, twas Messi, Ronaldo and Iniesta. 2015 was Messi Ronaldo Neymar. while 2016 was Ronaldo Messi and Greizmann.

Ribery
Lewandowski
Robben

They were a nightmare to the toughest defenses that year.

Even in PlayStation.

Oga, go and verify na before you continue to display ignorance. The 2013 Ballon D'or award was one of the most controversial as most people felt Ronaldo cheated Ribery who won all the major trophies whereas Ronaldo had none, especially also as the voting deadline was extended to allow voters take cognizance of Ronaldo's hatrick against Sweden which qualified them for 2014 World cup. Even Ribery spoke out against the perceived injustice against him. Where then did you see Robben Mister?

Because you love everything foreign.

Oh, Kelechi Ihanacho is a Nigerian, but I know him same Way I knew Vela.
Chukwueze, Ndidi etc, I know them all.
Who knows, maybe my own left is even Bette than yours

I wouldn't say because I have not seen your left leg in action. But I have seen Carlos Vela playing.

I rate Robin Van Persie better. You didn't know Kelechi and co when they were at your backyard

You kinda like assuming o. What if we grew up in same backyard?
You are wrong about Van Persie bro. The only thing V.P has in his left leg is curling and that's because he has very powerful kick. His left leg is not even sharp. All that aside, my rating is personal

Legend! I'm wishing him the best retirement.

I de talk of the left foot magicians, this one de talk of balon d'or n world best award... undecided
ThierryJay:


Haba na, best left footer bawo, where you wan put Diego Maradona, who scored more goals than Robben with his left foot? Even Rivaldo that won the World best award also had a wicked left foot.

Rivelino of the great Brazil of the 60s & 70s nko? Maybe after this 4 guys, we can then talk about Robben. Even Gareth Bale go wan challenge him small.

What baffles me though is how Robben never made the final three nominees for Fifa Ballon D'or in his career. He deserved at least a podium finish and this is sadly a dent in his CV.
