Messi overtakes Jorginho in the race to win the Ballon d’Or

Lionel Messi is poise to win the Ballon d’Or for the seventh time in his career after leaping ahead of Jorginho. Messi has started the season very strongly by powering Argentina to the brink of World Cup qualification with unbelievable technique and goals.

His impressive display with Argentinean saw him score a memorable hat trick to give Argentinean a memorable win over Bolivia in the World Cup qualifier as well as end Pele’s record as South America’s highest goal scorer with 79 goals.

Such a fate has helped move ahead of Jorginho in the race to win the Ballon d’Or but, if Jorginho can win the Club World Cup with Chelsea, he will certainly be the man standing in front of the podium and not Messi.
