World Cup 2022 Golden Ball Odds: A look at the contenders for the award with just eight teams remaining

The Golden Ball, along with the Golden Boot, is the most coveted individual award for World Cup players and with the quarter finals now looming large some of the world's greatest footballers are vying for the title of the…

Who are the favourites to win the 2022 Golden Ball?

Some stellar names can be found at the top of the Golden Ball betting market in Qatar.

After an electric start to the tournament, France forward Kylian Mbappe is joined by PSG teammate and former Golden Ball winner Lionel Messi at the top of the betting.

Jude Bellingham is the third favourite after some very impressive displays for England. The midfielder is followed by Richarlison, Vinicius Junior, Bruno Fernandes, and further back Ronaldo.

Cody Gakpo and Bukayo Sako could all be worth keeping an eye on.

Who are the previous winners of the Golden Ball?

10 players have won the Golden Ball since it was first dished out back in 1982, with no player ever winning the award more than once.

Perhaps surprisingly, only three of the 10 winners have come from the country that won the World Cup that particular year.

Each of those three players came in the first four Golden Ball editions, with each of the six Golden Ball winners from 1998 onwards all coming from a country that didn't win the World Cup, including 2018 victor Luka Modric.

As for how each winner is chosen, the FIFA technical committee string together a shortlist of players with the winner then voted for by media representatives.

  • 1982 - Paolo Rossi (Italy)
  • 1986 - Diego Maradona (Argentina)
  • 1990 - Salvatore Schillaci (Italy)
  • 1994 - Romário (Brazil)
  • 1998 - Ronaldo (Brazil)
  • 2002 - Oliver Kahn (Germany)
  • 2006 - Zinedine Zidane (France)
  • 2010 - Diego Forlán (Uruguay)
  • 2014 - Lionel Messi (Argentina)
  • 2018 - Luka Modrić (Croatia)
