Hlompho Kekana recently uploaded a snap to Instagram which featured a list of some the Ballon d'Or nominees on it, and topping it was his own name. He captioned the photo by saying: "Some people will say the first name on this list is photoshopped... boy I ain't say anything", followed by laughing emojis.

Which SA player do you think will be the first to get a Ballon d'Or nomination?
