2019 FIFA Men Best Player Award: Who can beat Lionel Messi?

The world football overseeing body has discharged a rundown of the ten best footballers on earth over the most recent a year from where the most elite will be named however who has been exceptional than the best player to ever play the delightful game? 

Three Liverpool stars, Tottenham's commander and a previous Chelsea playmaker make up an English Premier League-solid unexpected; the Eredivisie make a hotly anticipated rebound with two gifted youths; an ex-Real Madrid symbol put the Serie A back on the football guide; and Ligue 1's Golden Boy return after a fourth spot complete in the vote a year ago. Lionel Messi is the undisputed La Liga star and remains the one to beat come September. 

Focus back Virgil van Dijk, advances Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah are the Liverpool trio among five Premier League players shortlisted. Harry Kane skippered Tottenham's mind blowing raced to the Champions League. Chelsea had Eden Hazard's enchantment and objectives to thank as the Londoners squashed any and all individuals to lift the Europa League. 

Ajax pair of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt made the cut, just as 2018 FIFA World Cup champ Kylian Mbappe. 

Without precedent for a long, long time the present holder of the honor won't be in the race to hold the pined for gong. 2018 hero Luca Modric swam and sunk with Real Madrid last season, and is in this manner overlooked. 

Yet, who else other than the relentless Magic Messi is fit to be the following lord of men's football? 

You could draw up a long cast of stars – Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Neymar Junior, Antoine Griezmann, and so on – who ought to have effectively been on FIFA's rundown be that as it may, no ifs, ands or buts, everybody on it had the right to be there. 

Investigate Eden Hazard, for instance. 

The Belgium national group skipper was in moving structure as Chelsea made the EFL Cup last, slid into the class' main four and won Europe's second-level cup rivalry. 

The assaulting midfielder's commitment of 16 objectives, 15 helps and 14 man-of-the-coordinate distinctions was bettered by no other colleague. 

Shouldn't something be said about Harry Kane? 

The England worldwide was hindered a bit by wounds yet he was as yet a crucial piece of the Spurs side that about vanquished Europe with their striking assaulting style. His 17 alliance objectives in only 28 matches bore demonstration of his regarded completing capacities. 

Clubmate Son Heung-min would have justified a spot on The Best Player's rundown also however both would at present have been impaired by their absence of trophy won under the year in survey. 

At that point there's Sadio Mane. 

The Senegal forward's 22 objectives in 38 matches was an alliance high – together with partner Mo Salah – as Liverpool sought after class pioneers Manchester City to the last day futile. The failure of the alliance title misfortune was anyway washed away by their dazzling Champions League triumph. 

However, the Liverpool Number 10 just contributed 4 objectives to that accomplishment. He's fabulous yet he's no Messi. 

Furthermore, that impervious divider, Virgil van Dijk. 

The Netherlands chief didn't miss a solitary game for the Anfield goliaths in the Premier League, stowing four objectives and two helps. For a safeguard, who was similarly a dread for aggressors and guaranteed that Liverpool had one of the landmass' better barriers, van Dijk is likely the best in the business. 

The previous Southampton focus in those days rehashed a similar accomplishment in the Champions League as Liverpool lifted the UEFA Champions League. 

Be that as it may, with such huge numbers of skilled advances at their pinnacle, is the world prepared for another protector – recollect Cannavaro? – delegated as the ruler of men's football? 

There's Mohamed Salah. 

One of Liverpool's numerous saints in a fruitful season, even Salah realizes that Salah could have improved. Still viewed as perhaps the best player on the planet, the Egyptian forward got 22 strikes in 38 class games. It would have been discussed in high places if not that a similar player slammed in a bewildering 32 strikes in 36 games the earlier season. 

Without a doubt Messi can't be better-put by a striker who did not indent a solitary player of the month grant all season. 

There's likewise Frenkie De Jong. 

A very adaptable player, the 22-year old worked in various games as a cautious midfielder, box-to-box midfielder, and considerably focus back with the mastery of a virtuoso. Favored with an inconceivable scope of passing (Frenkie recorded a stunning pass precision of 91.4%), the remainder of Europe couldn't however be abandoned in amazement as the adolescent drove the Dutch goliaths to the semi-finals of Europe's head rivalry. 

In the wake of winning the Eredivisie and KNVB Cup, de Jong was casted a ballot the Eredivisie Player of the Season. 

A player Ajax purchased from Willem II for a skeptical 1 euro from there on earned a 73 million euros move to Barcelona where he would join the army adulating the little Argentina football god. 

We should not overlook his comrade, Matthijs de Ligt. 

The 19-year-old protector as of late finished a fantasy move from Ajax to Juventus subsequent to turning into a Dutch boss and a Dutch Cup champ. De Ligt was named the Eredivisie's Young Player of the Year following a record-breaking year for the skilled focus back. 

You could simply feel that regardless of his inconceivable year, we surely have not seen the best of Matthis at this time. 

Is it accurate to say that anyone is as yet asking, who is Mbappe? 

The Frenchman is completely out of Neymar's shadows and is back again on the rundown. Mbappe was the fourth-best footballer on earth a year ago and he's staking a solid case subsequent to turning into the principal player to win Ligue 1's Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year grants in a similar season. 

Clearly, 33 objectives in addition to 7 aids 29 matches, even in France, are shocking figures yet are those numbers up to Messi's standard? 

Doff your cap for Cristiano. 

Indeed, even the staunchest of Messi's fans realize that Ronaldo will be difficult to beat by and by. By the Portuguese's very own elevated requirement, the 28 objectives he struck in 43 appearances for Juventus was not simply stunning enough. 

Be that as it may, the 34-year-old has had another effective year with his nation, assuming critical jobs as Portugal won the debut UEFA Nations League title. 

The Portugal skipper completed second in the Best Men's Player grant last season and he's back in the chase again following a Serie A-triumphant battle with the Old Ladies. 

Ronaldo is the main past champ in conflict with the Argentine yet this must be Messi's year. 

Why Messi? 

The best player ever has one again delighted in another astounding season both on an individual and aggregate level. With Barcelona, he won the Spanish Super Cup and the La Liga, his tenth association title in Spain. 

The Blaugrana may have been thumped out in the elimination round however Messi still finished the crusade as UEFA Champions League top scorer with 12 objectives in ten games, a count superior to anything the ten he scored the last time the Nou Camp monsters lifted Europe's most pined for trophy. 

The 32-year-old bested La Liga's diagram for the two objectives (36) and helps (13 – level with Sevilla's Pablo Sarabia). That exertion gave the 5-time Balon D'or victor the Pichichi grant as La Liga's top scorer for a 6th time to approach Telmo Zarra's unequaled record which had stood unshaken and immaculate for a long time. 

Lionel Messi was then given the European Golden Boot grant after no one else could come anyplace close to his 52 objectives and 23 aids all rivalries. 

Aside from scoring wonder objectives, Messi's inside and out commitment is unrivaled with the Argentina captain likewise driving La Liga for absolute shots taken, shots on objective, chances made, opportunities of a lifetime made, fouls won in the last third, objectives from fresh, objectives from free-kicks, supports and cap stunts. 

About ideal for one practically super-human. 

It was nothing unexpected then that Messi grabbed the most man-of-the-coordinate honors (17) of the period and earned the most astounding normal player evaluations worldwide for a player that took an interest in more than 50 matches. 

Everybody on FIFA's rundown for Men's Best Player Award has won something aside from Harry Kane. Everybody has earned his shot to win it. Just one may have sufficiently done to take the crown home. All hail King Messi!
