The world awaits the decisive moment in the “Golden Ball” race between Messi and his rivals

Paris: The eyes of millions of football fans around the world will turn tomorrow, Monday, towards the Chatelet Theater in the French capital, Paris, to watch the ceremony of the new edition of the prestigious “Golden Ball” awards presented by the French magazine “France Football”.

This version of the award attracts great attention from all circles in the world of football, as it witnesses very fierce competition for the most prominent award, which is the Ballon d'Or for the best player in the world.

Frenchman Karim Ben Zima won the award in its last edition in 2022, relying on his great achievement with Spanish Real Madrid in the 2021/2022 season, when he won the Spanish League and Champions League double with the team.

But an achievement greater than this is almost certain to be awarded the award in the current edition, given the historical imprint of Argentine Lionel Messi with his country’s national team, which once again places him at the forefront of candidates to win the prestigious award.

Messi returns to compete strongly for the award in this edition, relying on leading his country to win the 2022 World Cup title in Qatar, 36 years after the team won its second World Cup title in 1986, when the legend Diego Maradona was the crowned star in the team’s ranks.

Messi played a prominent role in the team's victory in the title, and deserved to win the Golden Ball for best player in the 2022 World Cup. He also finished second on the list of top scorers in the same edition with 7 goals.

Only two months after winning the World Cup title, Messi won the “Best” award presented by the International Federation of Football (FIFA) to the best player in the world, for the year 2022.

Messi also won the French League title with his former team Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season before moving to his current team, Inter Miami, to begin his career with the new team by winning the “League Cup” championship, for which Messi was crowned top scorer in this edition and also won the best award. Player of the same version.

Messi faces strong competition from more than one player for the “France Football” magazine’s Ballon d’Or award, and these players are led by Norwegian striker Erling Haaland, the English Manchester City player, who last season with his team won the historic treble (the English League and Cup and the European Champions League).

During his career towards the podium with this hat-trick in his first season with Manchester City, after moving to him from German Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2022, Haaland achieved many records, especially with regard to the goal component, including scoring 36 goals in the English Premier League in one season.

These achievements were enough to give Haaland the Best Player award in the European Football Association (UEFA) referendum last season.

While Messi is looking forward to strengthening the record he holds for the number of times he has won the Ballon d'Or, and winning the award for the eighth time, Haaland dreams of winning the award for the first time.

While Haaland will be Messi's most prominent competitor for the Ballon d'Or, the list of candidates, which consists of 30 players, includes many other names who have achieved many achievements and left clear marks, but their chances of competing may be less than Messi and Haaland.

Prominent among these names are Frenchman Kylian Mbappe, who reached the final of the 2022 World Cup with his country and was crowned top scorer in the tournament in addition to winning the French League title with Saint-Germain, Belgian Kevin De Bruyne, German Ilkay Gundogan, and Argentine Julian Alvarez, winners of the historic treble with Manchester City last season. And Nigerian Victor Osimhen, who won the Italian League title with Napoli and was crowned top scorer in the tournament in the last edition, and other names.

Tomorrow, the ceremony will also witness the distribution of two other awards: “Kopa” for the best young player, and “Yashin” for the best goalkeeper.

The list of nominees for each of them includes 10 names, and it may be difficult to determine the identity of the winner of each, given the brilliance of many names in each of the two categories.

In the recent period, European stadiums witnessed the brilliance of a new generation of young players, who stole the spotlight from many veteran stars.

Prominent among these young stars on the list are Englishman Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid, Spain), Pedri, Gavi, and Alejandro Balde, Barcelona’s Spanish trio, and Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich).

At the goalkeeper level, Argentine Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa, England), Moroccan Yassine Bono (Seville, Spain, Al Hilal, Saudi Arabia), Cameroonian Andre Onana (Inter Milan, Italy, Manchester United, England), Brazilian Ederson (Manchester City, England), and German Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona, ​​Spain), Belgian Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid, Spain), and Frenchman Mike Maignan (AC Milan, Italy).
