The ballon dor award is a French award given to the most outstanding player every year solely on merit of individual performance and sometimes goals and trophies won.
It was so unfortunate the covid 19 pandermic prevented Lewandowski from winning his first ever ballon dor trophy after an outstanding performance both in his local league and in cup competitions.
However, this year’s ballon dor race has been one of the most keenly contested one in recent years with the two rival players Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi show casing their prowess in their respective international teams and the just ended club competitions.
Both emerged top scorers on the International stage as well as club level winning two trophies each with Lionel Messi finishing as the player of the tournament in the just ended copa America competition.
