    @Jean-Paul & Gromit, thank you for your replies.

    @Gromit, I checked the history of Ballon d’Or. The second awardee is an Argentinean (Alfredo Di Stéfano), in 1957. Maybe they changed the policy and excluded non-Europeans after him?

    Seeing this years nominees, it actually looks France is the only country whose domestic league is taken into consideration. Other countries are judged only by international competitions. See, for example, that Miho Fukumoto is a candidate. Yes, she was impressive in Olympic – “goddess” and “guardian angel” to quote Norio Sasaki. However, she so far conceded 24 goals in 19 games of Nadeshiko League where majority teams are amateur-only. I love Miho, but if you view her entire performance, both domestic and international, you can safely say she shouldn’t be in the list.

    In fact, I have just found this year’s candidates were selected by FIFA and France Football. (FIFA news) Then it’s no wonder Fukumoto is included, after seeing her in Olympic semi-final.
