The Best FIFA Awards 2022: Nominees and winners

Lionel Messi became the Ballon d’Or record seven-time winner in the football world on the 29th of November, 2021.

The event is already a part of history, while it is really enjoyable to watch the players not slowing down but continuing their improvement through the year to fight for the desirable award next time.

This year’s ceremony will be held in October and it will be given to the best player over a standard European season rather than during a calendar year.

Who will win the Ballon d’Or award in 2022? Some players stood out with their impressive form this campaign and could be among the nominees.

Benzema has proved to be a real fighter, who enjoys scoring goals for both Los Blancos and Les Bleus. His hat-trick against PSG in the Champions League last 16 led his team to victory and to the quarter-finals of the European top tier.

The semi-final against Manchester City was a memorable one as well, with the forward showing his class again scoring three times – two of them were from the penalty spot.

Real Madrid are the Champions League winners. This could be another boost for the 33-year-old to bear the name of the best player in the world.
