Having bagged the FIFA Best Award two years in a row now, Robert Lewandowski has made his way to the top and is widely regarded as possibly the best striker in the world at the moment. Unfortunately, the Polish superstar has still not won the Ballon D’or, despite an incredible 2019-20 season with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, which saw him guide the club to a continental treble for the second time, in addition to closing the season undefeated in 30 consecutive games in all competitions with 29 wins and one draw to their name.
Born on 21st August, 1988 in Warsaw, Poland to parents Iwona Lewandowska and Krzysztof Lewandowki, Lewandowski is known for his excellent finishing touches, smartness in positioning himself between the lines, ability to make a dash for it with ease between defenders and of course, his creativity and intelligence when it comes to reading the play when he is on the pitch. And how can proceed without mentioning the record he broke recently by surpassing the legendary Gerd Muller in terms of single-season goals when he found the back of the net a record 41st time on Matchday 34 during the 2019/20 Bundesliga edition.
At 33, Lewandowski is a beast of a striker and can certainly add the prestigious FIFA Ballon D’Or to his trophy cabinet if he continues to perform with the same level of consistency and zeal to win big.
