Lionel Messi is on the race of FIFA Puskas Award 2019

yes, it is good news for the Argentine little left foot magician’s fans. Their favourite star Lionel Messi is on the race of FIFA Puskas Award 2019. Recently, FIFA has revealed the shortlist which consists of three players where along with Juan Fernando Quintero and Daniel Zsori, the Argentine football legend Leo’s goal are selected.


In the last March 2019, Barcelona played against Real Betis where Lionel Messi scored an amazing goal which is selected as one of three best goals. With his teammate Ivan Rakitic, Lionel Messi played combinedly and the Croatian midfielder passed the ball to the LM10. With an amazing conakry shot, Lionel Messi found the net. Real Betis goalkeeper tried to stop the ball and he jumped but could not touch it.

In the last February 2019, against Racing Club, the Colombian forward of River Plate Juan Fernando Quintero took an amazing free-kick which was also curved and found the net. The goal was also amazing.

And the 3rd goal which was scored in the Hungarian first division football. The Romanian forward Daniel Zsori made an amazing bicycle kick and found the net. It is also selected for the Puskas Award 2019.

In the upcoming 23rd September 2019, at the Opera House, Milan the Best FIFA Football Award function will take place where the winner of the Puskas Award 2019 will be declared.

Lionel Messi which is the Barcelona skipper has as usual passed an amazing season last year. Considering all the competition, he has scored more than 50 goals in last season. So, he was shortlisted for the UEFA Best Menโ€™s Player where his rivals were the Dutch football Van Dijk and the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. By defeating LM10 and CR7, Van Dijk won the UEFA Best Menโ€™s Player award 2019.

Now, as usual, all three of them are selected for the FIFA Best Player. But it seems once again, Van Dijk will beat Lionel Messi. If we consider the individual performance, no players are near Messi considering the last season but Messiโ€™s Barca just won La Liga and failed to play the Champions League final and was defeated in the Copa del Rey final.

On the other hand, Van Dijk helped his team Liverpool to win the UCL title after a long time and also played the vital role of becoming the 2nd position in the last season of Premier League. But, it seems Lm10 would not return with an empty hand but has a possible chance of winning the FIFA Puskas Award 2019.
