BREAKING: Lionel Messi Edge Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema to Win FIFA Best Men’s Player Award, Marcin Oleksy Emerge First Amputee to Win Puskas >>>

In a highly anticipated event that celebrated the best players, coaches, and goals from the world of football in 2022, Lionel Messi has emerged victorious over his fellow PSG star Kylian Mbappe to win the Best FIFA Men’s Player 2022

The ceremony, which took place in Paris, featured numerous shortlists from World Cup winners Argentina and Women’s Euros champions England. Messi was considered the favourite for the main men’s award, along with his teammate Mbappe and Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema.

Lionel Messi emerged the best as a result of his impressive performance to lead his Argentine side to victory in Qatar.

The night also paid tribute to Pele and his contribution to football. Marcin Oleksy won the Puskas award for his outrageous finish, and he became the first amputee winner of the award.

Lionel Scaloni won the best coach awards beating Pep Guardiola and Carl Ancelotti.

The results from the night as as follows:


Alexia Putellas wins!

Courtois; Hakimi, Van Dijk, Cancelo; Casemiro, Modric, De Bruyne; Mbappe, Messi, Benzema, Haaland.

Clearly there’s a secret rule that the goalkeeper awards have to be shared around. And I don’t know what’s going on with that defence…

Tribute to Pele!

Infantino sends his love to Pele’s family, and we’ll now have a montage to reflect on what an incredible life the Brazilian lived.

Could spend the whole ceremony looking at some of his World Cup highlights, never mind everything else he achieved on and off the pitch.

“I never worried much about being famous.” Not sure famous does it justice.

Pele’s wife Marcia Aoki is up, and it looks like she’ll be collecting something. Infantino picks up a trophy, passes it to Ronaldo, and he hands it to Marcia.

“A big honour to be here at this magnificent FIFA tribute. My three words are grateful, grateful and grateful. Merci.”

Messi and his missus are here

Here we go!

The ceremony is underway in Paris. Jermaine Jenas – yes, that one – is presenting. Got to respect it. Giovanni Infantino will be giving a speech to get us up and running. How wonderful.

Hopefully today he’s feeling snappy.
