Son Heung-min, who ranked 11th in the ‘Ballon d’Or’ rankings, was excluded from the 14 candidates for the ‘Male Player of the Year’ at the FIFA awards ceremony.

Considering that Son Heung-min became the top scorer in the English Premier League last year and led Korea to the round of 16 in the World Cup in Qatar with an assist against Portugal in the final, it is worth raising an opinion that he is worthy of being included in the 14 players, but FIFA removed Son Heung-min.

On the 12th, FIFA confirmed and announced the nominees for the ‘2022 The Best FIFA Football Awards’ by category. It means that the awards ceremony will be held in 2022.

FIFA, which established the Player of the Year award in 1991, merged with ‘Ballon d’Or’ selected by French football magazine France Football in 2010, proceeded with the award ceremony under the name of ‘FIFA Ballon d’Or’, and separated from 카지노.Ballon d’Or again in 2016 to separate it. awards ceremony is held.

After an expert panel narrowed down the candidates, the best player, goalkeeper, and manager awards were awarded separately for men and women, and the Puskas Award, given to the player who scored the most wonderful goal, and the Fan Award were also established.

Qatar World Cup Golden Ball (MVP) winner Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Golden Boot (top scorer) winner Kylian Mbappe (France) are among the most notable candidates for the ‘Athlete of the Year’, although they did not participate in the World Cup due to injury. However, in the 2021/22 season, Karim Benzema (France), who led Real Madrid to win the two competitions and won the Ballon d’Or, was included as the top scorer in the Spanish La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

In addition to the three, Robert Lewandowski (Poland), who was selected as the 2020 and 2021 FIFA Male Player of the Year twice in a row, Julian Alvarez (Argentina), Jude Bellingham (England), Kevin Debrawiner (Belgium), and Elling Haaland (Norway). ), Ashraf Hakimi (Morocco), Sadio Mane (Senegal), Luka Modric (Croatia), Neymar, Vinicius Junior (Brazil) and Mohamed Salah (Egypt).

All 14 players were loved by soccer fans around the world last year and played an active role in the European stage and the World Cup.

However, if you look at the records of some candidates or the results of their teams, there is no reason why Son Heung-min cannot be included in the 14th.

In particular, in the case of Salah, along with Son Heung-min, he scored 23 goals in the Premier League in the 2021/22 season and took the joint top scorer, but his motherland Egypt was eliminated from the final African qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar and did not make it to the World Cup finals held in Qatar.

He also scored 7 Premier League goals in the first half of the 2022/23 season, and Son Heung-min also scored 3 goals with a hat-trick once. Considering that Son Heung-min helped Hwang Hee-chan’s dramatic come-from-behind final shot with a 70-meter dribble against Portugal in the World Cup, it is difficult to evaluate Son Heung-min as inferior to Salah.
