A Golden Ball for Messi! Lewandowski, the second. Here is the final order of Soccer

– Being able to win this trophy means a lot to me. It makes me proud. If you take into account all that I achieved not only this year, but also last year, when the ceremony was canceled, there were many titles and goals won. Winning the Champions League, Super Cup, Club World Cup, I broke Gerd Mueller’s record in the Bundesliga. This is something impressive. Everyone has seen what I have done and what I am still doing. My achievements speak for themselves, because the last two years have been amazing not only for me, but it would be so for every player in history – said Robert Lewandowski in an interview with “Marc” in October.
