Ballon d’Or 2021 full results: the final rankings

The Ballon d’Or 2021 full results have been revealed in Paris, with Lionel Messi holding off the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Karim Benzema and Jorginho to secure the title of best men’s footballer in the world.


A shortlist of 30 players was drawn up, with votes cast by football experts across the globe.

France Football, the organisers of the award, presented PSG’s Messi with an unprecedented seventh gong, concluding a year for the forward that saw both his first transfer and his first international silverware, lifting the Copa America with Argentina this summer.

No English player cracked the top 10, with Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling ranked highest, at 15th. Mason Mount finished 19th, Harry Kane at 23rd and Phil Foden 25th.

Premier League footballers N’golo Kante, Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo have all secured top 10 finishes though.
