(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 28 - Poland and Bayern centre-forward Robert Lewandoski told young people never to give up on their dreams as he received the Global Soccer Award for Best Striker of the year in Dubai on Monday.
    "Never give up, keep on dreaming," said the man who broke Gerd Muller's goal-scoring records this year.
    Lewandoski was feted by a crowd of countrymen but also other visitors including Indians and Germans.
    Euro 2020 winners Italy, coach Roberto Mancini, skipper and defender Leonardo Bonucci and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on Monday won the Global Soccer Awards for best team, coach, defender and best goalie of 2021.
    The Juventus libero, the ex-Milan PSG shotstopper and the others got their prizes in the 13th edition of the awards in Dubai.
    The Azzurri team prize was accepted by Italian Soccer federation chief Gabriele Gravina, who said it was due to "the technical quality of the players, humility, the ability of the coach and, above all, the support of our fans, a mixture that turned the team into one big family".
    Former Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter, Man City, Galatasaray and Zenit manager Mancini, from the Marche town of Jesi, said in accepting his prize "we always believed in the possibility of winning the Euros". (ANSA).
