Winning every possible trophy in football for a player no matter how great he is can be difficult. Only a few players have managed to win all trophies both for club and country including the World Cup and Euros.
Players likes, David Silva, Ronaldinho Gaucho, Kaka, Andres Iniesta, Juan Mata, Pedro Rodriguez among others have won all trophies in football. However, other players have won all trophies at club level but have managed to won one with their countries.
Lionel Messi had not won an international trophy until this year in Copa America which was a dream come true for him after failing to win in four finals in his career one being in a World Cup final. Messi now has an international trophy to his name. He has won every trophy at club level with Barcelona in his career.
However, currently, some great players have been successful but are yet to have an international trophy to their name. One of the best strikers and one of the great of the current football era without an international trophy to his name is Bayern Munich skipper Robert Lewandowski.
The Polish star has been successful with Bayern Munich winning the Bundesliga several times, the UEFA Champions League, club world cup among other trophies but has never been successful with Poland. He has been to Euros and World Cup with his country but has never been close to winning any trophy.
He has been one of the closest players to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo due to his reliable foal scoring form which has seen him score over 500 career goals for both club and country. Last season he deserved to win the Ballon d'Or and there are chances the award might be awarded twice this year.
Lewandowski is a great forward but he might not win any trophy with Poland as his country is not that strong as he is the only world-class player in Polish. However, he has been successful at the club level and he will be one of the greatest strikers to ever play football.
