Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been named as part of the list of contenders for the FIFA Best Men’s Player of the Year for 2021. The Poland national team hitman was the recipient of the same award last year. Lewandowski finished ahead of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to win the award at the end of 2020. All the three players have been nominated as part of an 11-man nominees’ list for the award.

Poland international Lewandowski has been in sensational scoring form since the turn of the year. Last season, he scored 41 goals in the German Bundesliga to break the long-standing record held by Bayern Munich and German football great Gerd Muller. Ex-Bayern striker Muller had scored 40 times on two occasions in the 70s. Poland national team skipper Lewandowski was able to set a new record for the most goals in a German Bundesliga season despite missing some games towards the end of last season. He missed a few weeks of football after sustaining a knee injury while on duty with Poland for their Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in March.
