The Best FIFA Football Awards

“For me, Cristiano is above everyone else”

The arguments against Virat Kohli being the greatest batsman in history are dissipating faster than the supersonic rate at which he scores runs. The India captain began 2019 by becoming the first man in history to simultaneously win all three major ICC awards – Cricketer of the Year, Test Player of the Year and ODI Player of the Year.

Off the crease, Kohli’s influence is stratospheric. The 30-year-old placed seventh on ESPN’s World Fame 100 this year, ahead of Rafa Nadal (eighth), Tiger Woods (tenth) and Lewis Hamilton (21st), while he boasts 107 million followers across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter – over double Paul Pogba and more than any other non-footballing sportsperson aside from Lebron James (117 million).

And as his followers know, Kohli is a big football fan. Ahead of India’s tour of the USA and the Caribbean to discuss, among other topics, his FIFA World Cup™ memories, reveal who he thinks is the best player on the planet, and analyse his own footballing ability.
