Golden Ball to Cannavaro

Adding another feather in the celebrated cap, Fabio Cannavaro, will be named the winner of the Golden Ball (Ballon d'Or) as Europe's top footballer. This information will be officially announced on the 27th later this month.
Currently giving strength to the new-look Real Madrid team, this champion defender stunned everyone this summer and motivated the Italian team to win the world cup.
During the journalists' vote counting session. he got fierce competition from fellow Italian and his juve mate Gianluigi Buffon, who deservingly finished second. The early frontrunner for the race was Arsenal player and French national Thierry Henry, who ended third in the race. An Italian has won this award after a long break of thirteen years after Roberto Baggio won the same in 1993.

Who is your European footballer of the year?

pata nahi aajkal I don't like football so much...
anyway know what, Fabioji slept with the trophy and broke it a bit :-). Maybe Henry would never win it because Henry and france don't go well together.
After 1993, thats surprising!!!
