The candidates for the ‘Asia Ballon d’Or’ have been decided.
Chinese sports media ‘Titan Sports’, which hosts the ‘Best Footballer in Asia’ awards ceremony, called ‘Asia’s Ballon d’Or’, announced 25 candidates on the 30th of last month. Created in 2013, this award selects winners for players who are active in countries or teams belonging to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). 토토사이트
Vietnam’s Nguyen Tien Linh (Binh Duong) was named on the list of candidates this time. Until recently, he was a pupil of Vietnam national team coach Park Hang-seo. Vietnam was crazy.
Vietnam’s ‘kenh14’ said, “Tien Linh was nominated for the Asian Ballon d’Or. He scored 6 goals in the AFF Cup and became the first Vietnamese top scorer. He helped write a new history in Vietnamese football. He also scored 9 goals in the Vietnamese league. He finished second in scoring.”
But I didn’t expect Tien Lin to win. It seems that he is satisfied with being nominated. The reason is simple. This is because the undisputed existence and the best player in Asia were nominated together. It is Son Heung-min (Tottenham).
The media said, “Tian Lin is playing with Asia’s best players Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae at the Asian Ballon d’Or. Tien Lin is competing with them. However, looking objectively, it is difficult to compare with other candidates active on the world stage. Candidate It’s an honor just to be on the top,” he explained.
The most likely candidate is, of course, Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min is overwhelmingly in first place with a total of seven awards. He was also honored with five consecutive awards from 2017 to 2021. Last season, he became Asia’s first top scorer in the English Premier League, and led Korea’s advance to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. As long as there is no change, Son Heung-min’s sixth consecutive award is likely.
The media also emphasized, “The most honorable person in Asia’s Ballon d’Or is Son Heung-min, who won the award seven times in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.”
