    Sasidhar: Ronaldo is not a deserving winner. Has done nothing since four months. Modric, Kroos, Isco and Messi are more deserving candidates

    Sign for Barcelona? Check.

    Fifa Best Award winner? Check.

    The Netherlands' Lieke Martens stepped up when it mattered at Euro 2017 and has become a star.

    The debate will rage on as to whether it should have been Australia Sam Kerr instead, but Martens is a very worthy winner.

  11. 'This one's for you'

    Lieke Martens, speaking at the Dutch training camp before tomorrow's qualifier: "Thanks you very much! I want to thank all my team-mates, without you I couldn't achieve this. Also my family is a big part of it.

    "My dad and mum, this one is also for you"

    SMS Message: Iniesta is still exceptionally talented and to think he’s still at this level with his age. Him and Buffon together prove dedication is key to success from Wahaab

    Dani Alves says it took him 14 minutes and 59 seconds to get ready. A precise answer.

    Now we get Kasabian on stage. This is an odd evening all round.

  20. Post update

    The crowd get the chance to ask some questions now.

    Carli Lloyd says that winning the 2015 World Cup is her proudest moment, Cristiano Ronaldo says that the key to his success is that 'talent without work, is nothing.'


    Neymar is asked how long it takes him to get ready for a night out - he says 20 minutes!
