Offside Ballon d'Or 1 I see what a fantastic year it has been for Robert Lewandowski. I think Messi will win because he, indeed, is one of the best players of our times. The question of a runner-up, hwoever, is debatable. Should it be Lewandowski, or maybe Ronaldo, or Neymar. We should be very happy that a Polish footballer has been inlcuded in such a prestigious group of top notch players and stars. I do feel a bit di\ssappointed, however, that Robert Lewandowski did not ,make it to the top three. One oThis is Poland's first win over France - current Olympic, world and European champion - in 22 years.
