FIFA World Soccer Player Of The Year 2006: Who Will It Be?

The whole world is still looking up to the upcoming, intelligent and young players, whom nobody wants to believe will take over from Ronaldinho.

I think Lionel Messi has all the necessary qualities to be the best in the world. I hope it happens for him because he has great talent and handles himself really well.

What do you think about Wayne Rooney? They [Lionel Messi and Wayne rooney] had problems as boys, but they got their heads screwed on intelligent soccer.

Now who do you think has got the head to believe that he can grab the world best?

moderator: OP needs to speak in simpler, less confusing English.

Why thank him when its obvious you both hate the French? A World Cup is meant to determine in such a year who is/was best especially as this event is eagerly awaited for 4 yrs, Zizou made all others look ordinary at the Mundial, so what are u talking 'bout? Henry lived up to expectations as against what peeps hitherto felt about him, ask Brazil!! I cant remember Dinho being at the Mundial, was he?? How many of u having watched Cannavaro being messed up anyhow after being crowned can proudly say he is the present King of Footie?

Only if they din't consider equal distribution of this title!

Yeah! so fair for a defender also to win but I cant fathom how those proffessionals can vote Cannavaro before Ronie and Zizou the football masters.I thought world player should have special skills apart from those in books which fabio has

Am over it anyway!

I think Zidane's nomination and his award as best player at the world cup were parting gifts from Fifa to him.

How did a player who had just one "very brilliant" game against Brazil at the world cup win that award.

I'm still wondering.Pirlo was man of the match for 3 games at the world cup.Buffon and Canna were also very consistent.

Have a lot of respect for Zizou.He's been such a terrific player but he didnt do enough last yr to be in the top 3.

Kaka or Eto'o should have been the last nominee.

For those symphatetic with Henry's cause, it's a pity he'll never win it.

I don't think the people who vote for these awards think he's in a league competitive enough.

Abi what other reason??After all Ruud has never won it too.

@ Kit,

Someone raised an important question on TV today:

The Super eagles have never won a major tourney since 1994 but are the 9th best in the world and 1 in africa.

The super falcons have won trophies for keeps yet are 24 in the world despite representing africa in major tourneys also, are those FIFA guys actually normal?

How did Zidane's name get there in the first place. SOmeone said the world cup is like four champions league for the fact that it comes up once in four years and is the worlds most coveted trophy, no yawa, all the same they were fair enough not to give it to him.

What's gonna happen today as per African footie of d year?

@ Hustler, i cannot agree with you more! I remember Puyol getting skinned for Barca on the way conceeding that goal at the final of the world Club cup, what about that second goal by drogba at the nou camp?

Ferdinand is a top dog, but i cant forget joe cole tturning him into a spectator at the bridge last season

Terry himself was given a good turn around by our own Yakubu last season

I think out of the three people shortlisted, he deserves it most!

Come off it.

U kno he deserved it.

The best defenders get skinned on the pitch all the time.

It's the consistency that matters.

UP CANNA

If what happened yesterday had happened before the Gala Award Nite, i'm sure Zizou would have taken it. 

Uche Ikechukwu made him look too ordinary as he dribbled past him and Guti to score the second goal against Real Madrid.

I would probably have given it to ronaldinho but the guy dissapointed me big time at the world cup. Zidane had at best an average season with Real madrid and an average world cup too + he didnt win anything last season!!club or country!!

Canavaro had a title winning season with Juve and captained Italy to the world cup. i think he deserves it. The votes were from natinal teams' coaches and captain, these are football people so they know what they are talking about

Zizou ko, Zizou ni.

If Zidane won it, i will suspend myself from watching football for 1 year.

How wonder how he won best player in World cup with that behaviour while Christana Ronaldo lost the young player's one because of wink. I will never forgive the English press.

Congrat Cana.

FIFA have lost it again. There isn't any point in following what FIFA says. Imagine England been rated above Germany, Netherland and Portugal.

Fabio Cannavaro wins the FIFA World Player of the Year award.

The 33-year-old Real Madrid defender beat off competition from Barcelona's Brazilian playmaker Ronaldinho and retired former France skipper Zinedine Zidane in a vote by national team coaches and captains.

Ronaldinho will clinch it.

His recent form just proves he is the best player in the planet.

Yesterday's goal was just amazing.

He knew the foolish defenders will jump up and he slotted the ball underneath 'em.

I have seen good players deceiving a player.

What do u call a player that deceived a wall of 5-6 players?

Dinho is a genius.

The difference between Dinho and others is about 1000 miles apart.

RONALDINHO all the way.

Italy and Real Madrid defender Cannavaro was named European Footballer of the Year but the identity of the winner of the FIFA award will be revealed on Monday, December 18 at a gala in Zurich so to your opinion who do you think worth the crown

Also Zinedine Zidane, 2005 winner Ronaldinho and European Player of the year Fabio Cannavaro were named as the three remaining candidates.

Zinedine Zidane?

Ronaldinho?

Cannavaro?

Its hard to say with the World Cup still to play.

If I had to I will say Thierry Henry and that is painful for me to say cos I hate Arsenal.But he singlehandedly has helped to drag a largely mediocre team into the 4th place in the Premiership and to the Final of the Champions League .

Many people will disagree but Ronaldinho is no longer as good as he was 2 years ago in the 2nd hal of the 2003/2004 season.This is partly because he tends to start on the left side of midfield unlike then when he played in the centre behind the main striker.

All those young players might be nominated ie Rooney,Messi,Fabregas, Ronaldo but Ronaldinho will outdo them.

they will start winning at 24.
