Clearly Messi and Ronaldo are the best players in Europe. Being considered as the third best player in Europe behind those to guys ain't too shabby. I agree that his play in the Euro Cup really elevated Iniesta's standing. While Messi wasn't involved in that tournament, there were a lot of other very good players that did play in it.
idk, the name just confused me a bit, when i saw he had won it, i saw european and how the euro cup played a big role in the standings, so i figured it was for euro players only. i hadnt heard of the award before today. when is the fifa award?
