Toni Kroos is of the view that Lionel Messi didn’t do well enough this year to feature in the top three of The Best FIFA Football Awards 2020. It was a trophy-less last season for Barcelona as Messi was not that great. The Argentine footballer, however, managed to find a spot in the top three of The best men’s player of the year alongside Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo. It was Lewandowski who walked away with the top honour. Lionel Messi Say Greatness Can Be Achieved if One Believes in Themselves.

I don’t think he did well this year.” Lionel Messi Overtakes Pele’s Record of Most Goals for One Club, Achieves Feat During Real Valadolid vs Barcelona Clash (Watch Goal Video Highlights).
