It is that time of the year again when world football’s elite are recognised at The Best FIFA Football Awards™. And while the awards this year will be a virtual event, football fans across the world can still stay up-to-date with all the news as it happens.
Reshmin Chowdhury and Ruud Gullit will host the virtual TV show broadcast from the Home of FIFA in Zurich. Gullit needs little introduction to football fans as a former captain of Netherlands and AC Milan, while Chowdhury – like the Dutchman himself – has experience hosting football’s premier awards event. She is a highly respected multilingual English sports journalist and broadcaster who works for BT Sport, talkSPORT and the BBC.
He has done it! Bayern Munich’s treble winner striker Robert Lewandowski has defeated Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to win the prestigious FIFA player of the year award in 2020. The Polish striker has outclassed two of the greatest players in history to become The Best FIFA Men’s Player for the first time!
Lucy Bronze has won The Best FIFA Women’s Player 2020! The England international has upstaged Bundesliga top scorer Pernille Harder, star defender and UEFA Women’s Champions League winner Wendie Renard to win The Best FIFA Women’s Player award. Bronze is the first-ever defender to lift the famous trophy.
Regulars Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo complete the newly announced FIFPro Men’s World11 for the year 2020. Here is a quick look at the complete FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11 2020.
