OFFICIAL: CR7, Lewandowski and Messi, finalists for ‘The Best’ 2020

FIFA has confirmed what was an open secret: Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Leo Messi are the finalists to win ‘The Best’ FIFA Player Award 2020.

It is now official that Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi will compete for an award once again, ‘The Best’, which is given by FIFA to choose the best player of this atypical 2020. However, Lewandowski is the favourite.

The Best’ FIFA Player Award 202is based on the players’ respective achievements during the period from 20 July 2019 to 7 October 2020 inclusive. Previously there were eleven nominees, with other illustrious players such as Mbappé, Neymar and Salah.

The winner will be announced at ‘The Best FIFA Football Awards’ ceremony on 17 December in Zurich. The votes of fans, journalists, national coaches and captains have been equally important so far, and will be given equal weight in the final.

Last year, Leo Messi won ‘The Best’, an award he had been struggling with in recent years. The Argentinean followed Modric after winning the Spanish League and being a semi-finalist in the Champions League with Barcelona.
