The Coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc in the whole world. So, in this current scenario, France Football decided to cancel the 2020 Ballon d’Or due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
After cancelling the Ballon d’Or 2020 award, France Football decided to reveal the Dream Team of 11 players at the end of this year.
France Football used to give the Ballon d’Or to the best male footballer since 1956. But from 2018, the Ballon d’Or also rewards the best female football player. Along with the Ballon d’Or, France Football also used to hand out two other trophies. The Kopa Trophy, awarded to the best young player since 2018, and the Yachine Trophy, handed to the best goalkeeper since 2019.
But all the 4 trophies will be cancelled for this year and a Dream Team of 11 players will be revealed instead.
France Football has now revealed the nominees for the goalkeeper, left back, centre back and right back for the Dream Team.
There will be 10 nominees for each position and 170 journalists from around the world will vote for the Dream Team.
The nominees for midfielders will be revealed on 12th October and the attackers will be unveiled on 19th October. The final Dream Team will be revealed in December 2020.
We’ll be back again on 12th October with the midfield nominees. Stay tuned here! Also, let us know in the comments who would you choose among the nominees.
