Although the Ballon d’Or has been canceled for Corona, FIFA is still giving the ‘Best’ award as usual. The names of the best footballers and coaches of last season will be announced in Zurich tonight.
The two best stars of the time Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected in the top three. New sensation Robert Lewandowski has joined. The Polish striker, who made five appearances in Bayern Munich’s five Bundesliga and Champions League titles last season, has scored 55 goals in all competitions. He is the biggest contender for this year’s FIFA World Player of the Year award.
Messi, the six-time FIFA World Player of the Year, has no record of success for Argentina and Barcelona team-wise. However, the Barca captain was the brightest last season in the Spanish La Liga with a personal best of 25 goals.
Ronaldo, the second-highest five-time player of the year, won the Serie A title last season for Juventus. CR7 scored the highest 31 goals for the team in the ninth consecutive league win of the club.
