Top 10 Ballon d'Or hot candidates announced
A few days ago, "France Football" announced the shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, and a total of 30 players were selected. The Ballon d'Or award ceremony will be held in mid-October. Messi was unable to play due to his diagnosis last season and his performance was unsatisfactory. He was rejected for the first time in 16 years, and Cristiano Ronaldo's ranking has also been declining in recent years due to ups and downs. After the article, I also introduce some highly-voiced players of the World Football Championship Golden Ball!
Here's a list of the top 10 hottest Ballon d'Or candidates:
Benzema | Messi's favorite for the Golden Ball
In the last season, Benzema won the La Liga and the Champions League for Real Madrid, and also won the best player in La Liga. The double crown plus the title of the best player has become the most popular candidate for this Golden Globe Award. The last season was Benzema's best, scoring 44 goals and 15 assists in 46 appearances. His dazzling performance made Messi, the world football star who has won 7 Ballon d'Or awards, also very optimistic about Benzema. Horse, saying "Benzema deserves a Ballon d'Or".
Benzema has never won the Ballon d'Or. When interviewed by the media about whether he wanted to win the Ballon d'Or, he said: "I am proud of what I have done. There is nothing to prove in this field!" Benzema He is also looking forward to winning the first Golden Ball award in his life, and based on the current odds analysis, the World Cup Golden Ball should be his.
French supernova Mbappe: I believe I can get the award in Riman
When Mbappe was interviewed by the media as a candidate for the Ballon d'Or, he said that Real Madrid is a machine that makes Ballon d'Or winners, and has trained and trained many winners of the Ballon d'Or. Teammate Benzema of the French national team also suggested that Mbappe moves to Real Madrid, but Mbappe firmly stated that he could also win the Ballon d'Or in Paris Saint-Germain.
When it comes to Mbappe's desire for the Golden Globe Award, he was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for the first time in 2017, which is already a supreme honor for Mbappe who has just become an adult. Although he was shortlisted for the Golden Globe Award, the candidate ranking has not improved. In the past two years, he has gradually become a real candidate to win the Golden Globe Award. Mbappe's performance in Paris-Germany was quite outstanding. In the 2018 season, he became the youngest player in the history of Ligue 1 to perform a big four; in the 20-21 season, he played a total of 47 times and scored 42 goals. Will the amazing goal rate become the candidate for the Golden Globe Award this time?
Egypt's King Salah aims to win Ballon d'Or
Salah's 7th place in the previous Ballon d'Or nomination, his lowest place in the Ballon d'Or shortlist (sixth in 2018, fifth in 2017) is not very satisfying for Salah. Salah said in an interview with France Football that he wants to be the best player in the world, so winning the Ballon d'Or is his ultimate goal.
In the 19-20 season, Salah reached his 100th game in the Premier League and completed the record for the fifth-highest number of goals scored by an African player in history. In the same season, he assisted Liverpool to win the first Premier League title in the team's history. ; In the 2020-2021 season, Salah scored a total of 24 goals, becoming the player with the highest number of goals in the 2021 Premier League season. Such a result can be called Liverpool's strongest player. Although the Egyptian national team was eliminated in the World Cup qualifiers this time, the strong Salah seems quite lonely compared to his performance in the national team, but his performance in the Liverpool team seems to be much more balanced. Lah can achieve better results in the club.
The Ballon d'Or restructured into the 2022 FIFA World Cup is not included in the selection criteria
A few days ago, the Golden Ball Award announced the restructuring rules, from the previous record to the season performance as the selection direction, and the Golden Ball award ceremony will be held in October, so the 2022 FIFA World Cup is determined. will not be included in the selection criteria. Also because of the restructuring of the Ballon d'Or this time, focusing on personal records, Messi, unfortunately, lost this year, and Ronaldo's ranking is not as good as before.

For example, this time Mbappe has moved from the previous candidate rankings 7 and 8 to the top 2. The change has greatly increased the possibility of winning the award for all the world football stars who have been shortlisted. This year's Ballon d'Or is about to be announced.
