Opportunity seized by the editorial staff of Afrique Sports to draw up our ranking of favorites for the highly prized individual trophy.


Canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the France Football award Ballon d’Or returns this year with a fight that is already shaping up to be very fierce. In the meantime, the two finals (the Euro won by Italy and the Copa America which crowned Lionel Messi) have made things a little clearer.



Other candidates have their strengths to show. Winner of the Euro with Italy and a major player in the coronation of Squadra Azzura, Jorginho comes second in our ranking. The big loser of last year’s cancellation, Lewandowski is on the bottom of the podium. In detail, N’golo Kante is 4th, Ronaldo who is the top scorer of Euro is 5th, while Neymar is 6th.

Finally titled with Argentina thanks to the success of the Albiceleste against Brazil, Lionel Messi is emerging more than ever as the favorite of the supreme individual distinction. It must be said that the Argentinian genius, in addition to having touched the South American trophy, was phenomenal throughout during this competition.



Top scorer, best passer, best player quite simply, the Barca captain splashed the tournament with his whole class. In short, the Argentinian legend is heading straight for a 7th Ballon d’Or, which would potentially widen the gap a little further with his rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
