Golden Ball 2022, where to watch the awards gala
Last year, France Football (the organizer of the poll) took a lot of criticism for the fact that the Golden Ball was awarded not to Robert Lewandowski, but to Leo Messi. This year, the Pole does not have much of a chance for the prestigious statuette, although the rules of the poll have been changed. Previously, players were judged for the calendar year. Now the selection is made for achievements in a specific season.
Currently, all indications are that Karim Benzema will receive the award. The Frenchman was a key player for Real Madrid, leading the Royals to win the Spanish championship and the Champions League. There are no doubts about the victory of the Los Blancos striker, among others, journalists of the Italian La Gazzetta dello Sport and bookmakers.
