Argentina exploits Qatar's hangover.

The conquest of the world crown continues to give revenue two months after that celebration that paralyzed a country in need of pleasant sensations like never before.

The banners of the champion team (scorer, goalkeeper and coach) gained notoriety at this Monday's gala of The Best Awards, organized by FIFA at the Pleyel room in Paris.

Leo Messi

, as it was sung, was distinguished as the best player of the year, a logical consequence after his nomination as the most valuable footballer of the tournament played in the Arab country.

The Spanish

Alexia Putellas

repeated the award for the second consecutive year as the best soccer player.

The Barcelona player was accompanied at the ceremony by the president

Joan Laporta

, harassed in recent days by the

Negreira scandal

, who was reunited with Messi in the distance.

Alexia Putellas defeated the English

Beth Mead

(Arsenal) and the American

Alex Morgan

(San Diego).

In the choice of Messi, his participation in the World Cup weighed more than his presence at PSG.

In the Parisian club he did not sign a determining role, he only excelled in the second part of last year, in the weeks before the start of the World Cup.

The Argentine, who already won this award in 2019, defeated

Kylian Mbappé

, a teammate at PSG and opponent in the final of the World Cup tournament, and

Karim Benzema

, champion of the League and the Champions League.

The Madrid striker did not attend a ceremony in which tribute was paid to


, who died on December 29.

Ronaldo Nazario


Ganni Infantino

had emotional words for whom many consider the most brilliant footballer in history.

"Pelé is eternal," exclaimed the FIFA president.

Márcia Aoki

, Pelé's widow, collected an honorary award.

Real Madrid, who considered that their Ballon d'Or deserved better recognition, sent a low-profile representation to the gala, led by

Emilio Butragueño


Yesterday afternoon,

Florentino Pérez

collected an award from Real Madrid for his "contribution to Spain's international projection" at a ceremony held at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in Madrid.

Nor did Benzema, Modric



travel to Paris

, included in the list of the best 11, chosen by FIFPro, the international association of professional soccer players.

His absences were justified so as not to increase the wear and tear of a very overloaded calendar.

Of course, the white club did not understand how Vinicius did not even appear in the list of the 26 finalists to the 11th of the season.

In that list they were, among others,

Cristiano Ronaldo



, with lower benefits than those exhibited by the Brazilian winger.

The white club players were finalists without a prize.

FIFA changed the scope of award selection from one season to one calendar year and that hurt them.

The development of the World Cup in Qatar set the tone.

Lionel Scaloni

was chosen as the best coach, ahead of

Pep Guardiola


Carlo Ancelotti


The Argentine coach, with no relevant track record, established himself in Qatar and became a national hero.

Yesterday, the Argentine Federation (AFA) announced that he will continue in the position of coach until the 2026 World Cup. Another who captivated the albiceleste fans was

Emiliano 'Dibu' Martínez

for his eccentricities and successes in penalty kicks.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper got more votes than Real Madrid player Thibaut Courtois and Sevilla player


, star of the Morocco team.

Argentina also won the award for the best fans.

Well that, festival of the champion.
