For many the 2021 Ballon d’Or felt like a bit of damp squib, with Lionel Messi collecting a record seventh annual gong.

In one corner were those endorsing a first Ballon d’Or for Robert Lewandowski, while in the other, Messi’s record-breaking antics were just and deserved.

But, which side of the divide did you find yourself? Of course, let’s not forget Jorginho, who won Euro 2020, the Champions League and the Super Cup this year, nor too should we ignore N’Golo Kante, who put in a Man-of-the-Match display in Chelsea’s European final against Man City.

Karim Benzema has also been outrageous in 2021, recently overtaking Thierry Henry to become the highest French goalscorer in club football. Struggling to pick a winner? Well, take our quiz below to see who you would have voted for if you were a football journalist, coach or captain of a national team this year.
