One of the football records that may never be broken is the Lewandowski record of scoring 5 goals in 9 minutes against Wolfsburg in 2015 after coming into the game as a substitute.
As we all know, top players who performed very for their club and countries have been shortlisted for the Ballon D'Or award. The 30 players that got nominated for the award are currently hoping to win the prestigious award. Some of the top players that got nominated for the final 30 contenders include Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ngolo Kante, Jorginho, Lewandowski, and others.
Portugal and Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo became the cynosure of all eyes once again after his heroics last night in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. The 36-year-old bagged a hat-trick in Portugal's 5-0 thrashing of Luxembourg. In doing so, Ronaldo extended his number of goals on the international scene (115) and also reached another milestone by becoming the footballer with the most hat-tricks in international football (10).
In football, one of the most important positions in a team is the striker position. This is because the striker is the major contributor to the team's success because of the goals he scores. This is why Strikers are more expensive in the transfer market than other players.

Messi is one of 30 players in the running for the Ballon d'Or this year, and he is the clear favorite after winning the Copa America with Argentina and the Copa del Rey with Barcelona. During an interview with France Football, the top scorer in LaLiga Santander last season explained what it would mean to win his seventh Ballon d'Or and who he would vote for if he had the chance to do so.
Nowadays, it seems almost impossible for football choices and rankings to be made without a bit (or plenty) of controversy. The FIFA Ballon D'or award is arguably the most anticipated award in football this year. The Ballon D'or Top 30 Men's List The long-awaited 30-man shortlist for the award has been revealed and a lot of the choices were quite predictable.
The 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place on Monday, 29 November after a 30-man shortlist for the award was announced. Many football analysts believed Lewandwoski should have been awarded the last year's ballon d'or after France Football revealed it would not be held due to Covid-19 Pandemic.
It's almost that time of the year again when the winner of the FIFA Ballon D'or award will be revealed to the world. This year's Ballon D'or is quite unique because over the past year, we have witnessed numerous players being tipped as the potential winner and at the moment, we are down to two players.
Although the season is too early to begin crowning a "best player in the world", It wouldn't hurt to rate Europe's best players so far this season based on their statistics. Sky Sports news recently made an analysis of some of the best players in Europe's top 5 leagues and there were definitely a lot of controversial picks that raised a lot of questions.
Ballon D'or: Why Messi is favorite despite Jorginho's excellency; as Kante & Lewandowski makes top 4
Less than 50 days are left until the Ballon d’Or ceremony. It will take place on November 29 at the famous Parisian theater Châtelet. More recently, we found out a list of 30 nominees - footballers who claim the title of the season’s best player according to France Football.
Argentine superstar Lionel Messi has been included in the 30 man shortlist of nominees for the Ballon d'Or award. This has been met with widespread happiness as it is the opinion of many football fans that he deserves the award this year. While I am not here to explain that he should not be nominated as that would be wrong considering the quality of his last season.
Lewandowski jas been the best football player in the world for the past three years. He was in the best form of his life before the global pandemic ravage the world in 2019/2020. Lewandowski won the UEFA Champions League with Bayern Munich and scored over 40 goals in that campaign.
Bayern Munich's match against Greuther Fuerth ended 3-1 in favour of the Reds. Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller both scored for Bayern Munich but Lewandowski didn't. His failure to score in that match ended his ridiculous goal scoring streak. Now, let us run through players who registered the most goal scoring streaks in football history.
This season has been rather inconsistent as many big teams are still struggling to find their feet. However, one thing that is consistent, is the goal scorers as the players who are expected to put in many goals are already off to a great start. These are some players whose goal record supercedes the amount of games that they have played this season.
Different players in the top five European leagues were highly impressive in 2020/2021 season. Chelsea won the UEFA Champions league title and Mason Mount was named Chelsea best player of the season. Manchester United missed their chance of winning the 2021 Europa league title losing to Villarreal in the final.
When talking about goals, only two strikers have had more in Europe than any other strikers this month. It's not Ronaldo or Lewandowski or Messi, neither is it the very popular Norwegian goal machine Erling Haaland. So who are these men? In all of Europe's hottest leagues, Nigerian and Napoli No.9 Victor Osimhen as well as France's and the Bernabeu's very own Karim Benzema, are the only strikers with the highest number of goals in September.
The 30 men Nominees for the 2021 Ballon D'or has been released by France Football with Leo Messi, and Robert Lewandowski leading the race for the prestigious award after a brilliant year by the pair for both club and country. The debate has slightly shifted from Jorginho-Messi to Lewandowski-Messi after the Chelsea midfielder was eliminated from the UEFA Nation's League by Spain few nights ago.
Some players put on an impressive performance for their respective clubs in 2020/2021 season. They were later recognized and given an award following their individual performances against tough oppositions. Erling Haaland is one of the best players in the World. He was highly impressive in 2020/2021 season scoring 40 goals in 40 games.
Robert Lewandowski has created Champions League history by extending his winning streak in European play to 18 games for Bayern Munich. On Wednesday, the prolific Polish striker was among the goals once again, this time in a 5-0 thrashing of Dynamo Kyiv. He scored a brace, bringing his season total to 11 goals across all competitions, and he added another entry to the record books.
