Updated Ballon d’Or Power Rankings: N’Golo Kante No Longer At The Top

We know it would be very painful for most fans to hear this report that N’Golo Kante is no longer on top of our Ballon d’Or power rankings as we give you the latest update.

The Chelsea midfielder would have had the strongest case if his France team were still in the running for the Euro 2020 title. However, Les Bleus crashed out of the competition at the last-16 stage. Though, Kante’s stock is still high thanks to his contribution to Chelsea’s win in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi moves up to first place in our updated Ballon d’Or power rankings. The Argentine produced an impressive individual outing in the Copa America quarterfinals, scoring a stunning free-kick goal and assisting twice against Ecuador.

Another change is made to the top 3 as Harry Kane who was the Premier League’s top goalscorer and assist maker last season and now has a great chance of winning the Euro 2020 breaks into the top 3 candidates so far.
