Cristiano Ronaldo has been nominated for the award multiple times already, taking it home on four occasions – including the latest version, in December 2017.
In spite of the Portuguese’s history in the competition, the French duo could pull up strings as they have a World Cup trophy up their sleeves. ‘Colchonero’ forward Griezmann also lifted the Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup with Atleti, while Mbappé finished the season-high winning three domestic titles with Paris Saint-Germain.
Past winners of the Globe Soccer Award – aside Cristiano Ronaldo – incorporate Radamel Falcao in 2012, Franck Ribery in 2013 and Lionel Messi in 2015.
