As a result of that, one of the Ronald Koeman’s men proved himself once again, as he claimed two individual awards, having been the most outstanding player throughout the tournament.

Lionel Messi has been named the 2021 Copa America “Top Scorer and Best Player”, mainly because of his performance and contribution to helping Argentina from the beginning of the competition.

Without a doubt, no player dazzled better than the Argentina captain, as he single-handedly carried the burden of the team. Neymar Jr displayed amazingly and remarkably as well, but the Barcelona wizard outperformed him.

Apparently, Lionel Messi is on the verge of winning his 7th Ballon D’or award, having outplayed many players in the year 2021. His competitors could be N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, but his performance deserves the prize.

The Blaugranas magnifico keeps proving his worth in the world of football, because it’s not easy to bag 2 individual awards in a single competition. And, that’s why he’s the best footballer in the world.

Can Lionel Messi win his 7th Ballon D’or?
