Ronaldo, Messi, Iniesta nominated for 2012 UEFA best player award

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, Real Madrid CF) Lionel Messi (Argentina, FC Barcelona) and Andres Iniesta (Spain, FC Barcelona) have been shortlisted by UEFA for the 2011/12 best player in Europe award.

The three Spain-based players came top of a poll of 53 journalists from UEFA's member associations. Andrea Pirlo of Juventus finished fourth, while Barcelona's Xavi came in fifth.

Messi won this award last year. Who do you think should win it this year? I think Ronaldo should, he was quite outstanding at the 2012 Euro Cup.

Okay, just incase these people do not know, the best player award competition is becoming quite boring, do we have to see the same set of players every year? What the bleep happened to other young players and supporting them?

I will go for Ronaldo, the cap fits him. Messi is not human and shouldn't be included in the first place.

James said...

We all know people will support Messi as there are so many Barcelona gloryhunting bandwangoners in Nigeria.:)

Ronaldo deserves it. He scored many goals this season despite sharing goal scoring duties with Higuain and Benzema. Messi on the other hand had strikers in his team injured.

If UEFA is sincere, something they hardly are, Ronaldo should win it hands down but their are too many fans of Messi amount them, sadly so, so the bias might just continue and the wrong person winning it. But Ronaldo is my bet any day, his season was fantastic, he won a title, Messi didn't. C C

UEFA should be wise and give the award to Iniesta. That is the only way to stop this senseless argument on who is better between Messi and Ronaldo.

Ronaldo was spectacular in the Euro 2012 and he missed 3 one-on-one against Denmark in group stages, Messi will never do that. And what of Iniesta that won Best Player of the tournament? Yet you think Ronaldo should win it.

ronaldo..all d way,but messi wins...

Messi is a football god n ronaldo remains 2nd best!! Messi will win by miles!!!! Haters gaan fry water!!!

Taiye Suleiman said...

I wondered why some people are economical with the truth. MESSI beat Ronaldo hands down, and you all know it. 50 La Liga goals compared to Ronaldo 46, highest goal scorer in UEFA Champions league, the highest by anyone on the planet and a total haul of over 70 goals in a single season, the highest by anyone on this planet again. Ok, so Ronaldo won La Liga last season, Messi won Spanish super cup, Uefa super cup and Copa del rey. Linda, dont let all these Man Utd fans and MESSI haters psyche you up, MESSI is the winnner, and with the above, we all know he beats ronaldo hands down in the last season.

Linda, if anyone had an outstanding performance at EURO 2012 it was Iniesta. Casillas came a close second and then CR7.

Gideon Christian said...

messi is the god of football and ronaldo needs to follow after messi so messi will win it cause he is outstanding

Seriously? The truth? How would you crown someone best in the world over and over again without seeing what the rest of the world has to offer? Its just sickening,how many non-spanish or "MESSI" players have contested the award in recent times? The other time you had over six spanish players, come on man!
