Facebook Names Biggest Football Personality on Social

Before the tournament has even started, 84m Facebook users have already had 221m interactions around Euro 2016, the social network has revealed.

Facebook also listed its top 11 players, based on the amount of likes their pages have received. Cristiano Ronaldo comes out on top, with 112m, well ahead of the nearest competition Mesut Özil (30m), Gareth Bale (26m) and Andrés Iniesta (26m).

Not only is Ronaldo the most liked player, he is also the most talked-about heading into the tournament. Interestingly, though, the rest of this list doesnt necessarily align with the likes – rounding out the top five are Sergio Ramos, Nani, Gareth Bale and Pepe.

France is the most talked-about team, meanwhile, followed by England, Russia, Germany and Italy.
