The one of Rosario surpassed by little to Virgil go Dijk in the votes -the Dutch was between the favourites- and increases a bit more his legend, since it is the only footballer that has written his name so many times in the prestigious award that awards 'France Football' in collaboration with 'L'Équipe'.
This edition was of première, since a year after creating the Trophy Kopa, the magazine gala also bet by the Trophy Yachine. The prize that debuted in the Théâtre du Châtelet of Paris was very expected by the fans, since it recognised a plot that usually remains something forgotten, the goal. Thus it was baptised with the name of the only guardameta that has conquered the golden statuette.
In a section in which there were a lot of promising options imposed Alisson Becker, champion of the Champions League with the Liverpool and of the Glass America with the selection of Brazil.

Although it is one of the best goalkeepers of the world, Marc-André ter Stegen has little recognition, although it is calm and centred in following shining on the terrain of game. The one of Mönchengladbach, that struggles for doing a place like titling in the selection of Germany, has turned into a pillar in the Barça, and wait with patience a distinction by which also battle other stars, as Jan Oblak or Ederson Moraes. It does not have it at all easy.
