Messi got more than twice as many votes from fans around the world as the Poland captain. All three candidates also cast their votes as captains of their respective teams. Lewandowski placed Messi at number two while Salah placed both in his top three. Messi placed Neymar in the top three and Kylian Mbappe, who now plays with him at Paris Saint-Germain.
