Ballon d’Or Power Rankings: Kante Still Leads As Ronaldo Finds His Way Back In Contention

With the Euro 2020 group stage over, we think it’s high time to make some changes in the Ballon d’Or power rankings ahead of the round of 16 starting today.

Despite securing just one win in the ‘group of death’, France haven’t really disappointed their fans so far – and neither has Blues man N’Golo Kante. The brilliant midfielder remains one of the key players on his team that is set to go far in the competition.

Furthermore, Kante had an exceptional Champions League outings and he has a good chance of claiming the Euro 2020 cup and fully deserves the No. 1 spot in our rankings.

Robert Lewandowski, on the other hand, drops to 3rd place as his Poland side have been eliminated from the Euros, while Lionel Messi climbs back to 2nd following his recent Copa America performances in which he got a goal and an assist.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s inspiring Euro 2020 showings make him a proper contender for the prize again but Portugal await a tough last-16 battle against Belgium.
