Messi.. the best in 2022 | sports newspaper

Argentine star Lionel Messi was crowned the “Best” award for the year 2022 at the ceremony organized by the International Federation “FIFA” on Monday in Paris, beating Frenchman Kylian Mbappe, his colleague in Paris Saint-Germain, and the latter’s citizen, Karim Benzema, the top scorer of Real Madrid, who was crowned with the Golden Ball.
The 35-year-old was rewarded for his leadership of Argentina to victory at the end of last year in the World Cup for the first time since 1986, by defeating Mbappe in particular after defeating France in the final by penalty kicks, after the two teams tied 3-3 in the regular and extra time.
The nominations were in favor of Messi, who previously won the title of “the best” in 2019 in this award, which FIFA returned to award in 2016 after separating from the Golden Ball award awarded by “France Football” magazine.
Messi, who won the Golden Ball award seven times in a record achievement, has previously attended the FIFA Gala podium in the past two years.
