Six PSG Players Receive Nomination for the Best FIFA Football Awards

The Best FIFA Football Awards are around the corner, which is why the nominations have been announced to honor the accomplishments of footballers over the year. Fans, journalists, coaches, and captains of the national teams all have a say in which players take home the awards for 2021 at a ceremony on January 17, 2022. 

When it comes to Paris Saint-Germain, the capital club sees six of its players receive a nomination for an award. 

Kylian Mbappé, Neymar Jr., and Lionel Messi are among the ten nominees for the best player award. Messi is coming off winning the Copa America this past summer, the first international trophy of his career. As a result, this accomplishment could put him as the favorite. 

Meanwhile, Gianluigi Donnarumma is nominated for the best goalkeeper award. The 22-year-old played a significant role in Italy winning the UEFA Euros and putting on a performance against England, especially in the penalty kick shootouts, so that might favor him. 

On the women’s soccer side, PSG also has two nominations with Christiane Endler (now at Olympique Lyonnais) and Stéphanie Labbé are in the running for the best goalkeeper award.
