Congratulations, Robert Lewandowski! The FC Bayern top scorer is The Best FIFA Men's Player 2020. The award from world football's governing body goes to a player from the German record champions for the first time. Lewandowski prevailed in the final selection against Cristiano Ronaldo and last year's winner Lionel Messi.
"I'm very proud and very satisfied. It's a big day for me and my club. I have to say thank you. This prize also belongs to my teammates and the coaches, at Bayern and in the national team," said Lewandowski, who received the prize on Thursday evening as part of the virtual gala for The Best FIFA Football Awards. "When you win an award like this, in an era with Messi and Ronaldo, it means a lot and it's a wonderful feeling. It shows no matter where you come from, no matter what your name is, what you do is important. We won everything we could," added the 32-year-old.
