Lionel Messi was awarded a record straight fourth Ballon D’ Or recently to the disbelief of many Cristiano Ronaldo fans. Messi being awarded can be justified by the fact that he had a record breaking goal scoring year to him despite winning only the ‘low value’ cups. What is baffling is the selection of the FifPro World 11. They selected a Spanish armada, an all Spanish affair. To be honest many of them deserved a spot in the team but not all. Some worthier candidates had been left out altogether. Is FIFA turning a blind eye towards other players who went on to have a good season over the Spanish contingent? These players deserved lot more given their contributions. You people decide about who should have been included.Midfield general.
Andrea Pirlo: He had a superb season with Juventus and the Italy national team. He helped Juve to the league title, the Coppa Italia Final and the Supercopa Italiana. With the National Team, he reached the Final of the UEFA Euro 2012. Do you still remember that sublime penanka or the assist that enabled Di Natale score against Spain? He rather than anyone deserved a spot according to the author.
Robin Van Persie: If Arsenal are playing in the Champions League this season it is all due to this man. He never looked like stop scoring last season, well neither does he now with Man Utd. One could say that Robin realized his true potential last season. Carrying Arsenal’s dreams on his shoulders he helped them reach a respectable third place in the league behind Man City and Man Utd.Cech mate!
Petr Cech: If anything but the league standings is to go by, Chelsea had a bad season given their ambitions. Amazingly they were one of the most successful premier league clubs last season winning the Champions League and a domestic cup. Petr Cech played an important part in their Champions League triumph. Cech’s heroics in the final saw them being crowned the Champions of Europe.Wonder Wall.
Other notable exclusions: Vincent Kompany, Ashley Cole.
