Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski won the Golden Ball of the FIFA Club World Cup - Qatar 2020 after leading his team to win the championship for the second time in its history.

The Polish striker registered a brace in the 2-0 semi-final win over Al Ahly SC, and it was his header that teed up team-mate Benjamin Pavard to score the only goal of the game in the final against Tigres UANL, the FIFA website reported.

Andre-Pierre Gignac came in the Silver Ball. The CONCACAF Champions League winners scored three goals at this tournament, all of which came from Gignac. The Frenchman struck twice in the second round as Tigres came from behind against Ulsan Hyundai FC, and scored the only goal of the game in the semi-finals. He very nearly added a fourth in the final, but his header after 23 seconds was deflected narrowly wide of the post.

Bayern's Joshua Kimmich won the Bronze Ball. From his position in defensive midfield, he set the tone for Bayern in both of their games and had a long-distance goal disallowed for offside in the final. (QNA)
