Leo Messi won his seventh Golden Ball in his career. Nobody can take his win in the plebiscite “France Foobtall”, and Robert Lewandowski only has to be satisfied with the second place. For this, the Pole was awarded the best striker of the year and went down in the history of Polish football. In the past, no footballer from our country has climbed so high in the Golden Ball poll.
Robert Lewandowski not even in TOP5? “Then we are surprised by the results of the Golden Ball”
Did Robert Lewandowski deserve the Golden Ball? Certainly yes. Especially looking at the fact that in 2020 “France Football” decided to cancel the plebiscite due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the Pole won almost all the prizes he could. The choice of the Argentine raises a lot of controversy, but the lack of Lewandowski in TOP5? Much bigger, and that’s what these two journalists voted.
Messi’s compatriot, Enrique Wolff in the top three to win the Golden Ball in 2021 chose Leo Messi, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo. The other two places were taken by Luis Suarez and Pedri.

A slightly different, but equally surprising choice was made by a journalist from Uzbekistan, Grigoriy Rtveladze. He chose Kylian Mbappe, Mason Mount and Leo Messi. Who completed the list? Giorgio Chiellini and Kevin De Bruyne. “Then we are surprised by the results of the Golden Ball” – signed Michał Pol, a journalist of the Sports Channel.
According to unofficial information, “France Football” may award Robert Lewandowski with the 2020 award. However, the editor-in-chief of the French newspaper said there was still time to make such decisions. Such a move was mentioned by many titled footballers, incl. Gary Lineker, Lothar Matthaeus and Patrice Evra. Leo Messi also spoke on this matter at the gala.
– Robert, I think you deserve the Golden Ball in 2020, “France Football” should award it to you. We all know you deserved it, you were a winner back then and you couldn’t get a prize because of the coronavirus pandemic. In my opinion, you should have this trophy in your home, said the Argentine.
