FIFA The Best Gala - Full list of 2019 winners

FIFA The Best Gala - Full list of 2019 winners

September 23, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The list of winners included the first-ever FIFPro Women's Best XI, with awards for Jurgen Klopp and Lionel Messi also being handed out.

FIFA's Gala was full of talking points, with the FIFA Women's World Cup and its stars playing a central role in the awards ceremony.

The gala kicked off with the FIFA Puskas Award for the Best Goal. The first surprise of the evening came as Daniel Szori defeated Lionel Messi for the Award, which marks yet another time in which the talented Argentine misses out on this award.

The next award to be handed out was the award for the Best Male coach. Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool's coach, collected the award with a big smile -and without a hat- on his face.

The next award was the one for the Best Fan, collected by Brazilian mom Silvia Grecco, who's love to her son and Palmeiras sees her narrating all the games to her blind kid. A truly touching moment for all those in attendance.

The next award went to Sari Van Veenendaal, who won the first-ever The Best Award for a female goalkeeper. Her antics with the Dutch side in the 2019 FIFA World Cup were enough to see her obtain this trophy.

Next up, Leeds United's boss Marcelo Bielsa was handed the FIFA Fair Play award for making his players concede a goal right after scoring one when an opponent was injured.

One of the historic moments came when the first female FIFPro XI was revealed. Sari Van Veenendaal, Lucy Bronze, Nilla Fischer, Kelley O'Hara, Wendie Renard, Julie Ertz, Amandine Henry, Rose Lavelle, Marta, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe were included in this stellar lineup.

Next up, Alisson Becker was handed the award for The Best goalkeeper. The goalkeeper may have taken a break from the ceremony, because he delayed a few moments to pick up the award. This was the most hilarious moment of the evening.

The award for The Best Female Coach went to the USWNT tactician Jill Ellis, who capped a massive career with her back-to-back FIFA Women's World Cup title this summer.

Next up, the FIFA FIFPro Men's World XI was officially revealed after the leak that made headlines hours ago. Alisson, Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Virgil Van Dijk, Matthijs De Ligt, Frenkie De Jong, Luka Modric, Eden Hazard, Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo (absent from the gala) were included in the lineup.

The big award of the evening went to none other than Lionel Messi, who beat Virgil Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to the prize. 

Last, but not least, Megan Rapinoe claimed the Award for the Best Female Player of the Year. Her inspirational speech included a heads up to eliminate racism and "to use the game to change the world for better."
