The three footballers who make the last cut are Lewandowski, Messi and Salah. In this way, others who had a great year such as Karim Benzema -he did not enter the podium of the Ballon d’Or- or Jorginho, European champion with Chelsea and Italy, are left out.

Lewandowski lived one of his best scoring moments with Bayern and was also close to winning the Ballon d’Or. He is the current owner of The Best, but will have a tough competitor in the current edition in Messi after his seventh Ballon d’Or and one year in which he was finally champion of America with Argentina. Salah, who was seventh in the France Football award, is among the best at The Best.
