Messi and Alexia crowned

Argentinian Lionel Messi and Spaniard Alexia Putellas received The Best award, which is awarded by FIFA to the best football players of 2022, and whose gala concert this time took place in the Salle Pleyel in Paris.

Messi, a world champion with a team of albiceleste, seemed like the most obvious option to win the second award of this kind in his career. The Rosario man has been extravagant in Qatar and this season he also delivered an outstanding performance for Paris Saint-Germain, another reason why national team coaches and captains, as well as specialist journalists and supporters, have voted for him.

Meanwhile, Alexia’s trophy, also her second, was somewhat more dubious, especially considering she was out of the field for almost a year, preventing her from having her usual succession.

The best of the three clubs were chosen by the Englishwoman Mary Earps (Manchester United), the champion of the Eurocup with her team, and the Argentinean Emiliano Martinez, another key figure in the Rio de la Plata title on Qatari soil.

On the technical side, applause went to Dutchwoman Sarina Wigman, who led England to victory in the last continental tournament, and Argentinean Lionel Scaloni, who led his team to victory in the World Cup 36 years after his last absolute world crown. .

The FIFA Fan Award, an award that recognizes the best fans on the planet, went to supporters of the albiceleste group who not only traveled en masse to support their players in Qatar, but took to the streets by the millions. their country to receive the “boys” who once again excited them.

The celebration also included a tribute to Brazilian star Pelé, a recently deceased three-time world champion. In addition, they remembered the Serb Sinis Mihajlovic and the Italian Gianluca Vialli, who also physically disappeared recently.
