Lionel Messi received the FIFA Ballon d’Or award yesterday in Zurich ahead of Xavi and Iniesta. My take was a tie between Xavi and Iniesta, where “Don Andres” would win.
The three of them are fantastic players, but I was naive to think that winning the World Cup would automatically rule Messi out. Then a two horse race between Xavi and Iniesta, where I would justify giving the award to Iniesta “just” because he scored the only goal at the World Cup final. Well, I got it all wrong!
Here is how the FIFA Ballon d’Or voting went:
I am looking forward to your comments!
