IFFHS NAMES XAVI HERNANDEZ BEST MIDFIELDER 2011

The FIFA backed IFFHS ( International Football Federation of History & Statistics) has handed in their list of the "Best Midfielder in World Football" for 2011 ( game creator + assistances) . The FC BARCELONA & Spanish Football International XAVI HERNANDEZ tops the list over second placed team-mate Lionel Messi. Its the 4th consecutive time that Xavi gets this prestigious recognition, & maybe, just maybe, the Golden Ball organizers can put aside their "marketing variable" & prize Xavi for at least his long & consistent trajectory. However, don't think this will happen.

But there is another great observation, there are another 4 more Spanish Football players in the Top 10 of World Football: Iniesta, Silva, Xabi Alonso & Cesc Febragas
