As the captain of Sweden, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was handed the opportunity to vote for the best three players in the world before Monday's Ballon d'Or ceremony.
The enigmatic striker, who is still going strong in Ligue 1 with moneybags Paris Saint-Germain, left out one very big name.
That's right, Ibrahimovic failed to select Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo when making his selections.

Indeed, the 34-year-old opted to select players specifically from his former club Barcelona. Well, to Ibrahimovic's credit, he got the eventual winner spot on as he selected Lionel Messi as his number one pick.
Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was certainly unlucky not to take to the Ballon d'Or podium this year, but he may well take satisfaction in knowing that he was Ibrahimovic's number two pick.
You guessed it: Ibrahimovic rounded off his voting by placing Brazilian ace Neymar as his number three choice.
The notion that Ibrahimovic has taken a biased approach to his selections may well come into question, but you can hardly blame him for choosing the aforementioned Barcelona trio.
It's safe to say, though, that Ibrahimovic really does love Messi...
Ultimately, Messi, Suarez and Neymar were incredible in the year of 2015 as they were crucial to Barcelona's record-breaking season.
The Catalans, of course, secured five trophies throughout the calendar year, so Ibrahimovic's preferences aren't exactly shocking. Ronaldo, though, will probably think differently...
Will Suarez, Neymar and Messi take to the podium next year? Have your say below!
