Lionel Messi Edges Closer to Winning 8th Ballon d’Or
The answer to this question is simple. Lionel Messi has already won 7 Ballon d’Or awards, which is the most by any football player in history. This award is the biggest individual award a football player can win in a year. Watching Lionel Messi play football for more than a decade has been a privilege, as he is a once-in-a-lifetime player.
Based on his performance in the FIFA World Cup 2022, it is likely that Lionel Messi will win his 8th Ballon D’Or. Last year, he was not even nominated in the top 30, but he is now in the number 1 race of winning it this year, which is something that doesn’t happen in any sport. In the World Cup, he scored 7 goals and had 3 assists, which means he contributed to 10 goals throughout the tournament. He also became the first player in men’s football to score in the league matches as well as a single knockout match. Additionally, he received 5 Man of the Match awards in a single World Cup, which is also a record.
Lionel Messi is likely to finish with more than 8 Ballon D’Ors, which will cement his status as the greatest football player of all time.
