17 December 2020Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich star winner of the Champions League, has been named player of 2020 by FIFA. The award ceremony in Zurich is a consolation for the European top scorer, who could not even hope to win this year the Ballon d'Or, as France Football has decided not to award the award for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
