In FIFA’s The Best awards ceremony this morning, the most prestigious title of “Player of the Year” was already taken, when Robert Lewandowski was once again named. The Bayern striker continues his brilliant form in the second half of the 2021/22 season as he leads the Bundesliga top scorer list with 23 goals. There are also 9 goals scored in the Champions League.

After the award ceremony ended, fans were curious about the votes of Ronaldo and Messi. These two players are entitled to vote as captains of the national teams of Portugal and Argentina. Accordingly, Ronaldo and Messi did not vote for each other for the title of Best FIFA Men’s Player.

Specifically, Ronaldo voted for Lewandowski in the top position, followed by Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Jorginho. Thus, Ronaldo voted the right player to win the most noble title.

Meanwhile, Messi voted for teammate Neymar in first place. Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema are also on the list of the 3 best players as voted by the Argentina captain. Neither Ronaldo nor Messi voted for themselves.

In this year’s poll, it is understandable that Ronaldo and Messi do not vote for each other because in fact, the performance and contribution of both this year are not outstanding than other names. Ronaldo was also comforted with the Special Award. This is the first time the “Special Award” has appeared in the FIFA The Best awards ceremony . This award is given to the player with the most goals at the national team level.

Ronaldo and Messi are considered the two best players of the current generation, with a total of 12 Ballon d’Or wins. Ronaldo is the player with the most international goals in history and won the Euro, while Messi is the World Cup runner-up and also won the Copa America. The Ronaldo vs Messi rivalry is always considered the greatest rivalry in world sports history.
