The Best Fifa awards live stream: How to watch online starring Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema
World Cup winners Argentina and England’s victorious Lionesses could each provide a number of winners at the annual Fifa Best awards.
The seventh edition of Fifa’s glitzy award ceremony sees a number of hotly contested awards, with Beth Mead among the contenders for an honour after powering Sarina Wiegman’s side to Euro 2022 triumph.
The award for Fifa Men’s Best Player could be Lionel Messi’s again, with the 2019 winner understably a favourite after his heroics in Qatar, but Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe and his fellow Frenchman Karim Benzema ensure that there is plenty of competition.
As ever, the great and the good will gather at the Paris ceremony to celebrate a fine footballing year.
