Just like in the World Cup final, Paris Saint-Germain teammates Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe go up against one another for The Best FIFA Men’s Player prize for 2022 on Monday, with Ballon d’Or Karim Benzema the other contender. Messi has won the Ballon d’Or seven times and claimed the FIFA award -– inaugurated in 2016 following FIFA’s split with Ballon d’Or organisers France Football –- once in 2019. “Because Messi won the World Cup he has the biggest chance of winning, that’s a fact,” admitted Ruud Gullit, himself a former Ballon d’Or winner. Putellas up for women’s gongBenzema’s chances of winning another individual honour were hit after he missed the World Cup due to injury. Brazil star Richarlison’s World Cup strike against Serbia is one of three nominees for the Puskas Award for best goal, named after Hungary great Ferenc Puskas.

With the Bangladesh series one of just three England will be playing before the World Cup, it would be ideal preparation. “All our preparation is geared towards that World Cup and these are the conditions that will probably be the closest that we can get to playing in India. This is exactly the kind of challenge we need, with the World Cup not too far away we can test ourselves against conditions that we as a side find the hardest,” he said.21 days ago News9Live

Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara, make their home near PGA National and have deep charitable ties to the tournament.
