The Best FIFA Football Awards™ 2021 ceremony, held as a virtual TV show from the Home of FIFA in Zurich, crowned two household names, Alexia Putellas and Robert Lewandowski, as the outstanding players in women’s and men’s football respectively.

Poland and FC Bayern München striker Lewandowski was recognised as The Best FIFA Men’s Player for the second year in succession. For her part, Spain midfielder Putellas, who had made The Best FIFA Women’s Player shortlist for the first time, capped her exploits with FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team by winning the prestigious award.


Robert Lewandowski said ,”It is a great honor and pleasure to receive the title of FIFA The Best Men’s Player .Thank you for your votes and your support “

Alexia Putellas’ rise to the pinnacle of her profession has been hugely impressive, and she emerged as a popular and convincing winner of this latest honour. But despite all her achievements, and the hard work that has underpinned each of them, the Spain star admitted to being taken aback to see herself scaling such heights.

“I never imagined I’d reach this level,” she said. “But when you put in the work and people have faith in you, the results come. That’s how it has been for me. We won pretty much everything last season and hopefully we’ll do that again this year.

“I’m not sure 2021 has really sunk in for me yet, nor have the last few months really. But I’m just going to carry on and hopefully even more success will come.”

Chelsea FC Women manager Emma Hayes was voted The Best FIFA Women’s Coach for the first time in her career, a feat that was matched by her Chelsea FC counterpart, Thomas Tuchel, who topped the poll for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach.

Chelsea Women’s coach Emma Hayes said , I’m lost for words, which doesn’t happen often. I just keep thinking about all my childhood and all my dreams, and all the hard work that my family have put into me, because they allowed me to do my job, my profession.”

Chelsea Men’s coach Thomas Tuchel said , “I feel like I can be the best version of myself at Chelsea, that I’m trusted and supported, and you can never, ever underestimate that. I feel happy, and I take the The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award on behalf of everybody who supports me and has supported me. I promise I will not stop working hard, staying humble, and always knowing that it’s a team effort.”


Senegal shot-stopper Édouard Mendy made it a hat-trick for the London club by being chosen as The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper, becoming the first African to win the accolade, while Chile and Olympique Lyonnais’ Christiane Endler was named The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper on the strength of her sensational displays.

The Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony also recognised two outstanding performances on the international stage, where landmark goalscoring records have been broken. Christine Sinclair, with 188 goals in 308 caps for Canada, received The Best FIFA Special Award for women’s football, and Cristiano Ronaldo, with 115 goals in 184 appearances for Portugal, received The Best FIFA Special Award for men’s football. FIFA President Gianni Infantino presented the awards to Christine Sinclair (virtual) and Cristiano Ronaldo (in person) during The Best FIFA Football Awards 2021 ceremony at the Home of FIFA in Zurich.

,“I think It’s much harder to score goals at international level these days,” said Ronaldo in 1997. “You can’t expect to score against Saudi Arabia or Australia or any other national team in the modern era. That record is not something I think about,”Cristiano Ronaldo added.



FIFA Fair Play Award: Denmark national team/Danish medical team and coaching staff

FIFA Puskás Award: Érik Lamela (ARG) – Arsenal FC v. Tottenham Hotspur FC [Premier League] (14 March 2021)

Erik Lamela – who departed Tottenham Hotspur FC for Sevilla FC in July 2021 – got the nod for his outrageous goal in the north London derby in March 2021. This is the second straight FIFA Puskás Award to be won for a goal scored in a Tottenham shirt, after Son Heung-Min claimed the prize for his strike against Burnley FC last time round.

The Danish men’s national team medical team, coaching staff and players responded heroically after Christian Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s match against Finland at UEFA EURO 2020, respectively giving him immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), forming a circle to shield him from cameras and comforting his wife and family.

FIFA Fan Award: Denmark and Finland fans

As the crowd waited for news on Christian Eriksen’s health following his
collapse during a group-stage match at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium during UEFA EURO 2020, fans of both teams banded together in an emotional tribute. Finnish fans chanted “Christian!” while Danish supporters responded with “Eriksen”.
