Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski are in the finals of FIFA Best Player of the Year
Portugal’s star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Poland’s Robert Lewandowski were shortlisted for the FIFA Best Men’s Player Award (FIFA Ballon d’Or). FIFA on Friday announced the names of all category finalists.
One of the 3 contenders shortlisted in all categories will be awarded. The virtual ceremony of the award ceremony will take place on 17 December. The award ceremony was earlier scheduled to be held in September, but had to be postponed due to Corona.
Lewandowski’s chances are more
Lewandowski, who won the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award this year, is considered a strong contender for the FIFA Award in the Men’s Player category. He made his club Bayern Munich champions in the 2019–20 Champions League. In addition, Lewandowski helped Bayern win the German League, German Cup and UEFA Super Cup.
Lewandowski leads in goal and Messi Assist
Lewandowski, playing from Bayern Munich, scored 55 goals and 10 assists in 47 matches, including all leagues and cups in the 2019–20 season. At the same time, Ronaldo scored 37 goals and 7 assists in 46 matches while playing with Juventus. While Messi for Barcelona has scored 31 goals and 27 assists in 44 matches in the 2019-20 season.
Messi won a record 6 times Best Men’s Player Award
Messi won the Ballon d’Or Award for a record 6th time last year. Messi (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019) won 6 and Ronaldo won (2008, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017) 5 times in the last 12 years. The award was won by Luka Modric of Croatia and Real Madrid in 2018. If Lewandowski wins these awards, he will become the second player after Modrich to end Messi-Ronaldo’s dominance.
