Each player's ultimate desire is to win the Golden Ball, which is awarded to the best performer at the World Cup. We will examine some of the early favourites for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The top possible winners of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Golden Ball are listed below without further ado.


Neymar has been a go-to technical player for Brazil since their 2014 qualification campaign, and his blistering start to PSG's season has shown just how good he is. In Qatar, Neymar may be used primarily as a facilitator, but he will be able to operate anywhere in the offensive third and team up with any forward. In order to become the greatest Brazilian player ever, he is on the verge of breaking Pele's all-time goal-scoring record, and this may be his best chance to win the Golden Ball.

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi's team was eliminated from the 2018 World Cup after falling to eventual champions France 4-3 in the round of 16. Since then, Argentina’s football team has developed both in confidence and talent, with Messi setting a high bar for his teammates. He finished with four goals and five assists over the course of seven games to lead Argentina to its first Copa America title in 2021. They beat Brazil in penalties in the final.

Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema had his finest season with Real Madrid in 2021–22, scoring 44 goals and dishing out 15 assists in 46 appearances across competitions. His heroics led Real Madrid to the Champions League, La Liga, and Spanish Super Cup. For his outstanding campaign, he also won the Ballon d'Or. He is considered a strong contender for the Golden Ball because his team play on the field helps his team score goals.

Vinicius Junior

The 2021-22 season was one of excellence for Vinicius Junior at Real Madrid, as he scored 22 goals and assisted 20 times in 52 matches. In addition to helping the Whites win LaLiga and the Spanish Super Cup, the young winger scored the game-winning goal against Liverpool in the Champions League final. It will be his first major competition for the Selecao as Vinicius Junior competes at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

So, let's wait and see which top strikers will take the Golden Ball home.
