The decisive factor for the Argentine’s renewed electoral triumph is the World Cup title in Qatar in 2022. Messi and Argentina beat France in a spectacular final.

Norway striker Erling Haaland (23) is considered his main competitor. The Manchester City superstar dominated not only the Premier League but also the Champions League across all competitions last season with 52 (!) goals. In the end he won the triple of championship, cup and premier class. A historic triumph for the Cityzens and especially for the young Norwegian.

Who will definitely come away empty-handed is Cristiano Ronaldo (38). The Portuguese has won the prize five times so far. However, he is now playing in Saudi Arabia and has had an extremely difficult year – his name is not even on the 30-player shortlist of candidates.

When was the last time a German won?

The last Ballon d’Or victory for a German was a long time ago. In 1996, Matthias Sammer won the title of best footballer in the world. Today’s TV expert was in the employ of Borussia Dortmund at the time.

Are German footballers nominated for 2023?

From a German perspective, national team captain Ilkay Gündogan (33/FC Barcelona) and Bayern gem Jamal Musiala (20) have been nominated. Both probably have no chance of winning the award.
