Grigg and Pigba get same number of votes
Northern Ireland striker Will Grigg received as many votes as France midfielder Paul Pogba in Uefa's search for Europe's best player.
Journalists from 55 member associations voted for their five best-ranked players for last season.
Juventus' Pogba and Wigan's Grigg came 25th out of 37.
Grigg, 25, failed to make an appearance at Euro 2016 but gained notoriety after a song was adapted in his honour.
'Will Grigg's On Fire' - a parody on Gala's 1996 song Freed From Desire - was written by Wigan fan Sean Kennedy, after Grigg scored 25 goals in League One during the 2015-16 season.
