The Best Men’s Player

The Best FIFA awards 2020 took place on Thursday evening.

Due to Covid-19, there would be no in-person attendance for this year’s award.

But with the Ballon d’Or not taking place this year, The Best awards were the most high-profile football ceremony of 2020.

The most high-profile accolade up for grabs on the evening was The Best FIFA Men’s Player award.

The award was first handed out in 2016, to then Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese then picked it up again the following year with Luka Modric and current holder Lionel Messi then landing the trophy in 2018 and 2019.
